Interactive wall displays are one of my favorite new things. Adding a QR code to a poster gives students the opportunity to take things further. If you’ve been hanging out with me this year, you know I’ve created interactive displays for you to celebrate Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and AAPI Heritage month. Now it’s Pride Month, and I’ve got another one for you.

Maybe you’re already out of school, or maybe you’ve still got a few weeks left (here’s looking at you, New York teachers). Whether you use it now, or put it up to celebrate LGBTQ+ creators throughout the year, this new interactive pride display features ten creative LGBTQ+ authors to share with your students.

Today on the pod, I’m going to introduce you to a few of these creators, so you know more about what’s behind the display. If you already get my emails each week, you’ll be getting this display on Friday. If not, you can jump into the show notes to sign up.

This year I’ve shared a Black History Month classroom display, a Women’s History Month display and an AAPI Heritage Month Display and the positive feedback keeps coming in. (Thank you!). So today we’re talking about the latest in the series, a display to celebrate LGBTQ+ creators.

The goal of these displays is to lift up the voices being celebrated that month, and provide quick activities for early finishers, stations, or bell ringers.

Each of the ten authors featured in this special display has a quick bio and then a QR code that leads to an author website, interview, trailer, etc. Students can discover new writers and works that intrigue them throughout the month (or anytime in the year) as they explore the links.

(This display has been designed with high school students in mind. You know your students and community best, so please do preview the material.)

To use this display, just make your copy, print the elements (cardstock is ideal), cut them out, and put them up wherever you wish.

You can choose between smaller and larger sized version of the QR-code author posters, depending on how big you want your display to be.

Then just print and connect as many border pieces as you wish.

I hope you’ll enjoy using this display in your hallway or classroom! To get your (totally free) copy, you can subscribe to my email list below, and it will be the first thing I’ll send you. That way you’ll receive my Friday emails full of teaching ideas, and you won’t miss out on the next display coming for Hispanic Heritage month!
