    what are the file folders used to display the work and where do i get some like that?

  • Allen Anderson

    You can use the same idea for Seligman's 24 Character Strengths and highlight / shade the top 5for the individual (just like eyes have light and shade in them).

    I love the idea for your displaying students work with the folders making it so easy to have students take their work home later. Thanks
