One project I do each year is an American Identity project in which students choose 1 of 8 famous American speeches/documents and answer the questions.
1. What does the speech/document say about what it means to be an American?
2. How does the speech/document add to the American identity and American rhetoric?
Students are given creative freedom to do lots of different types of videos. Below are a few links to some of their products. Feel free to email me if you would like the project rubric.
Lincoln's Second Inaugural
Declaration of Independence
