Hi all, I've got a new teaching gig this year (English 9-12) and my room was pretty barren when I walked in. I've taught middle school and elementary school in the past and have usually went all out to decorate--I've spent DAYS in the past to get my room looking really great. This year, to my own surprise, I don't feel super pressured to get things up on the wall. I've put up some personal photos from trips I've taken, a large calendar for the students (that they can write birthdays, events, HW on), a literary elements poster, a few A4 size photos from old nature calendars I cut out, and I printed A4 size quotes about writing and reading (in color) and hung them on my back wall's bulletin board. The teacher before me left behind these beautiful paintings on canvas (student work), so I've got those up, too. So, my room is no longer completely barren, but it's quite under decorated from what I've done in the past. I don't really have a lot of resources to decorate, nor the time. Also, I want to hang up student work, so I would rather wait and save wall space. How decorated is your high school classroom?
