This 2-hour strategy empowers students to create a video to be used inflight detailing a historical event they are traveling to in the past. In this strategy, students document locations, historical figures, historical landmarks, and social conditions of that time.
Because Adobe Premiere Rush enables professional video editing, this strategy empowers students to create a documentary-style video.
