I like a well decorated History room. I like a good poster. I even like quotes, yes I do. I know they can be pithy, banal, cliched, out of context etc, but still, they are great to refer to occasionally.
OK, enough of my justifications; History quotes just make excellent classroom decorations.
I am very happy to share with you my collection of 80 posters. You can download them all here:
80 History Quotes Classroom Posters (50 MB, in PDF, JPG and DOC)
- Quite a few are made by Russel Tarr, who is the undisputed king of History posters. See his collection of free posters here and here, on Flickr. (Thank you Russel!)
- There are some great quotes about knowledge, made by Paul Grace (Alleycathistory.com)
- Some were downloaded (for free) from Teacherspayteachers.
- The rest are of unknown provenance. Some are made by my students, some were just found on the internet.
- It’s pretty easy to make a quote into a poster. There are many apps that do it for you and then there is quotescover.com, which generates good looking quotes in less than 5 seconds.
If you found this Poster Pack handy, and if you have some of your own you’d like to share, could you please tweet me? (@vanweringh) My classroom walls are still relatively bare so I’m always on the look out for more.
