Current Event Collage

Current Event Collage

  • Angela Wong

Looking for a fun, visual way to help your students get involved in current events? This beginner-level project challenges students to develop and communicate a personal stance on an issue of importance today. Students use online search tools to find images, and then they combine them in Adobe Photoshop CC to create a collage that tells a story and conveys an opinion. Students can either use basic Photoshop tools or push themselves further to create beautiful works of art.

  • Lesson plan
  • Technical tutorial
  • Rubric
  • Peer review form
