I created this set for a school counselor's office and thought it would helpful for others to have for IB hallways, gyms, or other office spaces. The set contains 10 posters, profile definitions printed between cute brackets, the same profile definitions you can print without brackets, and 2 pages of extra brackets to get creative as you set up the board. All of the definitions also have alternative definitions for you to choose from. And to highlight your display there is a 2-page teacher's arm with a camera and the title "Our Learner Profile". Just print and set up by putting your own brightly colored paper behind each profile for a lot of contrast!
