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.

Historical Podcast

Create a podcast based on your research of the life of a historical figure or historical object (e.g., book, museum artifact), or some other topic you're interested in.

Reading the Classics

Guided reading of literary or historical texts from antiquity or from 18th or 19th century America. Examples could be reading the Greek and Roman biographies, the speeches of Lincoln and Douglass, or ancient or modern poetry.

Epistolary history

Creative historical writing project inspired by the ancient letters of Pliny and Cicero, epistolary novels like The Ides of March by Thornton Wilder, and the documentary films of Ken Burns. Write a series of letters between historical figures that detail the events, thoughts, and concerns leading up to, during, and in the aftermath of historical events, and present them in either written or podcast format. Examples include the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the Battles of Actium, Marathon, or Gettysburg, or Sack of Troy.
