I ran this program during Spring semester 2016 with success. I will continue this year with a new batch of 3rd and 4th grade students. The children really got into it and were quite competitive. Students earn badges for each of 6 levels.There are 23 steps in all, each designed to be completed in a 55-minute session, making the program 22-23 weeks long. To see the program in progress, go to: http://digicorps.businesscatalyst.com/index.html Please feel free to download and revise anything so that it fits your program. I have included the Illustrator file for the badges so that you can customize them for your program. Included below are: Intro video (made with Adobe Spark).pdfs of every lesson step of the program - editable in Adobe Acrobat DC.ai file of the badges, easy to customize for your program.ai files of the pen-tool worksheets.ai (Illustrator) files of the badges so that you can customize the program for your class!

Graphic Design 2 curriculum to build upon the curriculum designed for Graphic Design 1
I've created a sequence of Photoshop projects aligned with the concepts students are exploring in AP Environmental Science (ecosystems, keystone species, evolution, etc). This Google spreadsheet includes video tutorials, anticipated student outcomes, and learning targets. Additionally, I will continue to add to this document as the semester progresses to include new projects, student work, and tutorials. These lessons were designed for students with zero experience with Photoshop. Since we've started integrating Photoshop in to the class, engagement has skyrocketed and students report a deeper appreciation overall for science curriculum. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!
