Telling Your Story with Adobe Premiere Rush CC

Lesson Plan Published 12/8/18 Last updated on 3/2/20

Who Am I?


Video is a great way to share stories. Perfect for amplifying and sharing students voice. This is an opportunity for students to tell their own story they can share with others via their own social media, YouTube channel or website.


In this project, students will create a short personal story using Adobe Rush CC. It can be anything your are passionate about. School, family, hobbies, sports, art, etc. As long as it’s about you!


Create a video using Adobe Premiere Rush CC (mobile or desktop version)


3-5 hours (adjust as necessary)

Planning (Pre-production):

Students can use this Storyboard to help plan your story. If students aren’t great artist don’t worry, they can use stick figures! Here’s a great video that explains storyboarding.


With storyboard complete, students will need to capture footage mobile phone or camera. There’s an advantage to using mobile app. You can capture footage within the app and directly add it to timeline.

Students can partner is necessary to help each other out.


Students will organize and trim clips to tell your story.


  • Add an Opening Credit (Who Am I? )
  • Add an Ending Credits (add writer, director, producer, camera operator and any others that helped)


Students will add a Music track. Can be the music provided in Adobe Rush or royalty free music. If you have musicians in your class, encourage students to make their own music.

Motion Graphics:

Adding motions graphics adds some flare to videos. Possibly provide extra credit to those students that add motion graphics.
