Collaboration and intergenerational models are often sought after within academic planning.  Beginning as an exploration activity within the World History course at  Facing History New Tech ,  9th-grade students were required to study and deconstruct famous World War II propaganda posters.  Following their initial investigations individual students (with the help of their freshman counterparts) were required to reenact their historic poster.  Prior to their green screen photograph students needed to not only provide all necessary accessories and props but were instructed to practice their prescribed poses, postures,  and facial expressions respectively. Once their green screen photograph was taken, the images were passed on to the graphic design students.  Students in the graphic design course (grades 10, 11, and 12) had no prior graphic design experience before enrolling.  First, they were required to remove the green screen.  Their next step was to add any additional objects, symbols, colors, or text.  Finally, they made their recreation image look vintage by appropriately matching the time period.    This exercise lasted approximately two weeks and took place during the third quarter of the school year.   The following recreation posters were created exclusively using Photoshop CS6.
