This is a project I have used at the end of the year, for extra credit, and to increase engagement in the course. A small rubric is included to get you started. I usually go very briefly over basic expectations OR I had some requirement (like page length) to the paper. This is editable for your convience. I have used it in both History and English and always had good results. Students love getting a choice. They usely need at least 3 weeks to work or a week in class.
