Three days into an eight week computer lab project a student came up to me and asked, “Is it alright if I don’t do this project and get an F?” Once I got past the quick “No” response, I had a hard time getting past the seriousness of his request. Within the next few weeks I heard two more comments from students who wanted to do little or no work. My response was to incorporate these requests and comments into a series of laminated “No Posters” and hang them on a bulletin board. I then reviewed the posters with each of my classes and let them know if they ever considered using these phrases on me the response would always be “No!” Over time I added more “No Posters” and some original motivational posters. Soon the students referred to my collections as the “Wall of Shame” (their words, not mine!)
Included in this package are 10 “No Posters”, 3 motivational posters, and a blank “No” background which you can use to make your own posters and/or slides.
