Instructional Ideas

  1. In preparation for making a class presentation, students can use this website to create a visual aid that compliments their presentation.
  2. When teaching a vocabulary term, historical person, or significant event, teachers can have students create a infographic for it using this website. As part of that assignment, teachers can require specific content to be included, such as a certain amount of text, images, and colors. When finished, teachers can require students to post their infographic to a class website and include a paragraph that explains how their infographic relates to the topic.
  3. As part of a propaganda lesson, teachers can have students use this website to make posters that use a specific propaganda technique. Once students complete their poster, they can upload it to a class website. In response, other students can view the posters and have to identify which propaganda technique was used by the poster.
  4. When teaching about advertising, teachers can first have students view examples of different billboards, and they can discuss the qualities of effective and ineffective billboards. Next, teachers can break their class into small groups and assign each group a product, such as gum, shoes, television, etc. The groups will then have to create a billboard using this website to advertise their product. When finished, each group can present their billboard, and the students who did not present can discuss the advertisement’s strengths and areas for improvement.
