My students insist on calling my "Famous People: Wise Words" bulletin board "Wise Dead Guys", despite many attempts to convince them that not all of these people are dead, but at least they get the basic idea behind it! I start the year with these nine posters and challenge students to bring me quotes to add to it them from people they learn about throughout the year. It ends up being quite the favorite, and inspirational, board!
