Homeland Project

This project will introduce you to editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, while letting you explore a social/historical issue. This issue affected many Jews in the 20th Century and is currently unfolding in Europe today as people from areas of conflict in the Middle East are fleeing and migrating into Europe. You will focus on the three areas of video production: preproduction, production and postproduction, and will form a narrative that has a beginning, middle and end.

Civil Society - Whose Job is it to Guarantee We All Live in One?

This 2015 Milton Wolf Prize winning lesson is designed to introduce students to the UN Declaration of Human Rights and to help them realize the need for individual civic responsibility to assure that these rights are reality for all humans.
