Recently, a speaker at a professional development gathering referred to students as our "customers."
I slipped into a daydream (not uncommon at professional development gatherings) and imagined how our department could market our classes and the skills we strive to develop to our students...advertising English class!
The product that I'm offering here is the beginning of what my colleagues and I hope will be a successful campaign, an appeal to students to take advantage of and make use of the skills and qualities acquired through activities in English class, skills essential to their success outside the classroom.
Included is an English class logo with the slogan "Read Write Realize."
Each of us displays this slogan on her classroom door.
There are 10 posters promoting skills and character qualities developed in English class:
--critical thinking skills
----having an open mind
----problem solving skills
---------joy of learning
Each poster has a relevant graphic.
Each poster is in color with a white background (conserving toner).
Thank you for your consideration of this product.
I hope you have a group of inspired students who are aware of the fabulous offerings of English class!
