This is a plan of professional development session for teachers, but it can also be used as an assignment for students on a particular discipline. Graphs are tools which users of Illustrator are rarely used, but these tools can help us to create great pieces of infographics. In this session participants will look at great examples and try to create their own.
A time tested manual from my teaching days.
Worth a look.

I do a lot with lettering and calligraphy on and off the computer. It is important for students to learn about type and how to use it wisely. I developed three puzzles that force students to closely analyze the positive and negative shapes of letters. Any time a student heightens his visual acuity, all of his designs will benefit.
The .zip file contains nine worksheets in .pdf format.
I found this website very informative while I was creating my logo. Although this website is really pointed toward making a company logo, I found some of the tips helpful. The first one is do not use clip art. It is easier but it can easily be copied. Another thing is stick to no more than three colors.

Here's a Calendar that can be printed, cut out and folded to make a 12 sided 'cube'. Created in Adobe Illustrator. Feel free to edit it or just use the pdf version. For future years, just tab and backspace/delete about 50 times to move the dates around. Designed for 8.5x11 but it fits on A4 paper. I often use a thicker paper to print, so the dodecahedron folds better.

It's so difficult to get a student to document their process. So often it's hard to even get students to explore their design through process sketches, scale models, etc. This is a way to have students take the time to really explore all the possibilities as well as give their fellow students insight into a different perspective and possibly a new way to use the tools at hand.
