    1. The ‘in’ is crossed out. So instead of ‘the best fish and chips in the world’ it just reads ‘the best fish and chips the world.’

  1. I have it on good authority that the 800 Degrees sign had to have the word “Degrees” added to it because idiot tourists kept mistaking the 800 for the building number.

  2. The ACHIEVE one. It’s part of a classroom management technique, to have consistent expectations for different activities that happen in the classroom. In this case we have that the Activity is direct instruction. Students are allowed no Conversation with each other. If they need Help they raise their hand. Integrity is about what is or is not cheating, so I guess they’re supposed to share their notes at the end and not during instruction. What demonstrates Effort is if you Sit up, Lean forward or Listen, Act interested or Ask questions, Nod your head or Note key information or No talking, and Track the speaker (lots of variations). This activity has Value because you’re getting important information. And it varies what helps student Efficiency. Activity, Conversation, Help, Integrity, Effort, Value, Efficiency. It’s also similar to CHAMPS, which stands for other things.

  3. The ACHIEVE one should be one worst design. Its a non-acronym which in additions reads even worse by itself and acronyms within acronyms. Its indescipherable. And Kris Z thought that there was only one mistake.

  4. What’s wrong with the sign directing you depending upon room number? It’s driving me crazy that I can’t figure it out! Halp!

    1. You can’t tell if you should follow the arrow across from the numbers you want or above/below them. It’s confusing the way it’s laid out.

      1. Had they put the arrows pointing to the room numbers, then the design would have clearer. In defense, of the layout, most people read right-to-left (mostly likely that is the way to read the directions) so it’s an easy to make ‘mistake’.
