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.

Hollywood vs. History

With this project, students can watch popular movies that are based on historical events and compare the depictions and characterizations against the actual accounts found in primary sources. This allows students to learn how popular legend and the mythologizing of history takes place.
