Back to school 2019

Inspiring visuals to promote diversity + culture

Some of you are already back to school and others are still waiting on the floors to be ready… I know when I’m prepping for a new school year I often suffer from DESICION FATIGUE. 

It’s hard making so many decisions, so when I can see a great example, copy it, and give them credit – I’m so grateful.  

Maybe you could use a great idea for a bulletin board, door decoration or world language hallway now OR later in the year.

Here are 3 amazing ones and the people who shared them!  

Oak Park and River Forest High school


I love this hallway design from this Chicago area school. What a fun way to promote amazing people from the target culture and break down stereotypes of what a “latino” looks like. 

I’m sure it makes students curious about these ladies. 

Perhaps it’s something they’ll learn this year! 


Lebanon City schools


Hats off to this Ohio school who made sure there was a flag to represent every student’s nationality . 

Do you know what nationalities are represented in YOUR school or district? This is a great talk to have with students AND a purpose for practicing nationalities and geography in the target language! 


Fayette County Public Schools


Jen teaches elementary Spanish in Lexington, Kentucky and created these bulletin boards in the hall for students and parents to check out during their school’s open house. What an interesting way to get them all comparing culture and seeing some target languages. Way to go, @Senora_Kennedy! 



Have another suggestion? A question?

Love these ideas like we do?
