Language Arts: Creative Writing

Lesson Plan Published 11/8/17 Last updated on 6/5/19

Post-production photo editing can skew the message of an image in a variety of ways. In this lesson, students first add filters and manipulate one photograph in three different ways to convey starkly different moods. Then they fine tune their writer’s voice by crafting tone and mood to go along with each image and begin three very different stories. Finally, they publish their work with Adobe Spark Page to share with their classmates.
