Language Arts: Visual Biography

Lesson Plan Published 11/14/17 Last updated on 12/20/17

Students use Adobe Spark to create a visual biography of a historic figure. Students tell the person’s story, leveraging the layout, design, and interactivity of Spark Page, Post, and Video to emphasize important events or aspects of their life. The goal is for students to use a digital media tool to communicate their ideas and help viewers visualize and understand their subject.

  • This is great, Spark is ideal for a chronological story. It could be quite dynamic to view with videos popping up. I've seen some great investigative journalism presented in this way recently and it's really engaging. I imagine students would enjoy working with images as well, much friendlier than working with just text!
