At the High School of Economics and Finance where I am student teaching this semester, ninth graders are writing research papers on a historical figure to improve their writing and research skills in preparation for college.  In an effort to support the curriculum and help students relate to their historical figures, the librarian and I have assigned a video creation project on an aspect of the time period students have been studying.  Possible topics to focus on are technology, fashion, customs, politics, food, etc.–any aspect of their historical figure’s culture.  Students may choose to use either Photo Story 3 or Animoto video creation softwares. Here’s a sample Animoto video I created for the lesson, titled “Love Your Library!” :
