Description and Purpose

Students create posters or exhibits that illustrate their understanding of key course topics, issues, or ideas. On presentation day, the class divides and half the students walk around and view displays while others stay with their display to explain and answer questions.

This SET engages students on multiple levels. Students must (1) do an initial activity (such as constructing a model, researching a topic, or analysing an issue) well enough to produce something to exhibit; (2) be creative as they generate possible ways to represent and display their idea or product; (3) evaluate possibilities and choose their best display design; (4) devise a workable implementation plan; (5) carry out their plan and construct the poster or exhibit; and (6) reflect upon what they learned so that they are able to summarise, synthesise, and share their learning with others on presentation day. In addition, 'Poster Sessions' provides teachers and students with an alternative to conventional written reports, thus meeting the needs of a wider range of learners. Finally, this activity can help students deepen their knowledge and understanding as they view and discuss the exhibits of their peers.
