AWBAT combine type and image to create a "self-portrait confession" using computer software.

1. Design Software (we used a free, open-source program called Scribus)
2. Typefaces (computers come with a variety of system fonts, but you can always add to existing options)
3. Student portraits (I had them take photos with my phone)
