Michael Clay Thompson: Classroom Posters

Michael Clay Thompson: Classroom Posters Series Cover

For years, participants in Michael Clay Thompson’s workshops asked for copies of the images he uses to explain the workings of grammar, poetry, and other aspects of language arts, so we have made them available for classroom teachers as bright and colorful posters for the classroom wall. These posters will help students visualize the simplicity and beauty of important concepts of language.

Each poster is 17.25 x 22.5 inches, is printed on light card stock, and is laminated with environmentally friendly materials to remain bright and fresh for many years.

For a set of smaller posters suitable for homeschool use, go to MCT Homeschool Posters.

For a complete overview of the program, go to the Michael Clay Thompson Language Arts Curriculum page.
