Nearly 10 years ago, Superman Action Comics #1 sold for over 3 million dollars. That’s a lot of paper for, well, a little paper. If you look at the artwork, it hasn’t aged all that well. By today’s standards, this handywork wouldn’t even qualify for a student newspaper. But it had the unique distinction of being #1. It set expectations, it changed them as well. It wasn’t just the artwork that connected with a generation, it was the messages tucked inside – good versus evil, heroism, random acts of kindness. These aren’t just dust collectors; this is heavy duty stuff!Details

Educating children in 2021 looks very different than it has in the past. Hard held beliefs regarding hands-on learning and face-to-face interaction have had to be put aside in the name of health and safety. However, children learn best through multisensory learning, and it is especially the young students and those that struggle in school that are being most harmed by the move away from hands-on learning.Details
Finding ways to decorate the classroom in a way that is educationally relevant, not distracting, and aesthetically appealing can be a hard balance to strike. One element of classroom décor that can (and should!) be found in every classroom, across grade levels and subjects, is some sort of display of the expectations of the classroom.
