posters in the classroom - learning is shown on a poster Problem solving and steps to do a lesson is shown. Research has shown that posters are useful and meaningful to students. Learning can be seen at different angles on a poster for everyone to see and learn from each other.

This is exactly what I need. I see the value in posters but my dept are not so keen. This gives me the facts to back it up and to support my dept in doing posters to 'educate not decorate'. Thanks

Very constructive and positive strategies. How this can help students who are classified as ADD or ADHD? How can we make them undertsnad the sequence of problem solving?

This is an excellent idea for a group activity. I am a social studies teacher and I guess I can also use this technique in my class room. The only difference would be of co-teaching method applied in this video. But I will apply poster technique as the starter activity and then to conclude it. Thanks to the video source.

Learning with posters is an effective strategy. It also lends itself to a review of key concepts as well. I love the term "working wall."

    Summary

    Creating a poster helps a primary class find the solution to a maths problem.
    Pupils at Heather Primary School in Leicestershire are asked to solve a maths problem and put all their working out on a poster. The posters don't have to be pretty as long as they are clear reminders of how the problem was tackled.
    This method is backed by research outlined by Philippa Cordingley, director of the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education.
    She explains how creating the posters reinforces the learning and makes it more meaningful while promoting positive group work. This strategy can also be used with secondary pupils and in other problem solving subjects
