Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Action Research Project

Is there a problem in your community (school, neighborhood, state, or beyond) that you want to make change on? Does this issue deserve real, actionable solutions led by the stakeholders impacted by it? An action research project is the systemic process of analyzing an issue and determining a root cause in order to implement solutions and reflect on their impact. Whether the issue is personal or community-based, we can work together to research, take action, and critically reflect in order to inspire real change!

Creative Re-write

Literature is widely regarded as a mirror for life, reality, and society. What happens when the world mirrored in a text does not include you? Or includes a version of you that you do not identify with (and even take issue with)? Creative re-writes provide a platform for you to challenge and interrogate the assumptions and implications underlying a text. Together we can rewrite or create a scene from a text of choice in order to reflect, discuss, or explore something new.

Short Story Project

Whether you want to explore a personal childhood memory or create a whole new science fiction world, we can work together, from idea to final product, in order to develop a short story you are proud of.
