What's Your Story? Creating an Autobiographical Page with Adobe Spark

Give your students a voice and let them tell their own unique stories using the free website Adobe Spark! This high-interest project implements autobiographical writing, photos, images, and video in order for students to "tell their stories."

This engaging resource includes an Autobiographical Page Slide Presentation on how to create a page using the Adobe Spark website or the Adobe Spark iOS app.

All you need to complete this project is Google Chrome! Students can create their own beautifully designed pages from any device!

Students will tell their own personal stories through writing, images, text, and video/website links.

Using the Autobiographical Page writing options presented in the project slide presentation and the student planning template, students will enthusiastically design their own modern, unique pages using the user-friendly Adobe Spark website.

Students will include four required sections on their Autobiographical Page:

About Me, Who I Am, Memorable Events, and My Future Plans.

Students will choose two writing options for each section. Multiple options are presented for each section! Students choose!

Why allow your students choice? Students assume more ownership over their own learning when they are given the opportunity to select the topics that most interest them!

This product makes planning easy and provides a no-prep way to implement a high-interest, interactive project that your students will love!

Two project pages have been created in Adobe Spark for your students to view and use as a model – one for a teen girl and one for a teen male student.

This dynamic autobiographical project includes the following resources:

A pdf file with Google Drive share links for each resource;

Autobiographical Project Slide Presentation for Students (Outlines Writing Prompt Options for Each Page Section);

A How-To Guide for Creating Adobe Spark Pages with Screenshots;

Adobe Spark Page Tutorial Video Link;

Student Planning Template with All Project Requirements Listed;

Editable Teacher’s Grading Rubric;

Access to Two Sample Teen Autobiographical Pages Created with Adobe Spark;
Implementation Guide with Teacher Notes.

All materials for this project are editable. Directions for accessing these materials and sharing them with your students are available in this resource for Google Classroom users, Google Drive users, and for teachers using Microsoft Office and Microsoft OneDrive.

The Autobiographical Slide Presentation provides students with clear directions, and ensures they will be able to complete this project from start to finish through a structured and organized process.

The variety of writing options that students are given for this project are high-interest and appealing. Students will love having creative choice in designing their own unique, modern Adobe Spark Pages!

This project is a perfect addition for a unit on memoirs, autobiographies, and biographies. Teachers can also use the included resources to help students create their own sleek, modern digital portfolios!
