School Spotlight: Paul Revere Digital Art Project by 7th Grade Students in Houston, Texas

School Spotlight showcases creative projects that relate to Paul Revere and the American Revolution produced by students across the United States. For information on submitting your school's project for consideration please contact Education Director Emily Holmes at: emily@paulreverehouse.org.

"Paul Revere/American Revolution" Digital Art Project was created by 7th grade students in the Junior Academy at Raul Yzaguirre School For Success in Houston, Texas. The project was designed to support the history core-subject area and at the same time immerse the students with graphics software skills training as a part of the Technology Applications classes taught by Mr. Tom R. Chambers. Mr. Chambers, an old friend of Paul Revere House Executive Director Nina Zannieri, suggested the collaboration. The museum is pleased to share the students wonderful images with our virtual audience.

The Raul Yzaguirre School for Success Charter School was established in 1996 by the Tejano Center for Community Concernsas an open-enrollment institution, one of the first twenty charter schools approved by the Texas State Board of Education. In spite of being economically disadvantaged and often entering the school one or more grade levels behind in core subjects, Raul Yzaguirre School for Success students and parents commit to academic success. School demographics: 95% of the students are on the free or reduced lunch program; 96% of our students are economically disadvantaged; 56.2% have limited English proficient, and 74.2% are at-risk.
