Of course computer apps teachers teach history! When teaching backgrounds and watermarks, I love using this assignment because my students really do have some knowledge of history and they love to show me what they are interested in. I always pick the top five designs and display them in the hall for bragging rights. My history teachers love it, too! The second half of the assignment asks the students to make a flyer for their favorite sports team. I have actually had "good natured" trash talking happen during this assignment because the kids get so into it and they LOVE their teams. As always, get the kids working with something that interests them, and everything because easier (and more fun).
