Social Studies: Visual Thesis

Lesson Plan Published 11/9/17 Last updated on 5/6/19

A thesis is the main point of a paper, supported by detail and evidence. In this project, students learn how to develop strong thesis statements; conduct research with primary sources; and gather public domain artifacts to create persuasive and informative video essays. After compiling evidence to support their thesis statements, students use features of Adobe Premiere Clip, such as filters, effects, lighting adjustments, and sound to produce a creative and impactful digital piece.
