Spark Exemplar: African American History Project

Web Link Published 8/14/18 Last updated on 6/5/19

Students use Adobe Spark Post to create a visual biography of a historical African American figure.

This resource contains two links. One is an example of student work where a group of students used Adobe Spark Post to create a visual biography of Dr. Mae Jemison. The other is an Adobe Spark Page with the educator’s instructions for the project.

Please feel free to share both links directly with students and try this assignment in your class!

This lesson was created by Sherri Kushner.
