The Rice Process's curator insight, July 13, 5:15 PM

 

These marketing principles apply easily to the classroom.  The teacher is charged with motivating, exciting and encouraging their audience to ‘buy into’ a lesson or activity.  Using effective marketing strategies promote lesson concepts, project ideas, and themes in exciting and appealing ways.

  Classroom environments, bulletin boards, learning centers and other items can be inviting to students through the use of selective colors.

 

Traditionally, the primary colors--red, yellow, green, and blue--provide the appropriate background for sensory and emotional appeal.  Consider using the colors in unique and intentional ways to evoke a particular emotion or response.  For example: A unit on the environment, geography, engineering, math, and literature can easily use colors in the following ways:

Use colors to name working teamsAssign colors to historical or literary figures studied in a unitIncorporate colors into a legend or keyDesign learning centers

 

The color red conveys strength, passion, and excitement.  Red triggers confidence and courage.

 

The color yellow suggests joy and energy. Yellow draws attention.

 

The color blues evokes trust.  Blue is associated with intelligence.

 

The color green sends a warm and safe message. Green invites growth and freedom.

 

Incorporating specific colors into projects, learning centers, and other learning elements impact students’ responses.  Colors provide multiple ways to be creative and imaginative in the physical, emotional, and intellectual learning environment.
