Fight For What’s Right WORD
Below are some initial “ideas” – word walls are all the rage….so how can you make yours interesting, inviting, persuading, challenging and informative?!

………………don’t forget that you are going one step beyond these in that you are not going to be relying primarily on images – you are focusing on WORDS – but you can set up your word so that

a) 50% of your word needs to be covered in some form of “wordage”

b) 25% of your word can be colours, textures, 3-d – non-image based

c) 25% of your word can be image-based – photos, symbols…
