Footnote is an incredible site for students to create projects about U.S. History.  It provides access (free) to thousands of primary images and documents, which students can easily include in an online report.  The report will then be hosted by Footnote.  You can see a very rudimentary sample I made in five minutes here.

It’s easy to differentiate projects based on the English level of your students.

I’ll certainly be using it in my U.S. History, Government, and World History classes next year.

I’ve placed in on my Examples of Student Work page under Student American History Reports.

You might also want to revisit a post  I wrote a few months ago about another site where students can make online U.S. History projects.
