The student is me, and my problem is this:

I'm in an English independent study in which I need to create my own final project. The reason I am in an English independent study is that a typical English course here is taught by a new age hippy and is an overblown art course. Anyway, I lack any creative powers and would LOVE some ideas for a final project.

I think I asked a similar question here before and got some good results, so I hope for the same this time.

Is there and outline or do you just need to think of an english project. I mean with this little info the sky is the limit. Might as well write a novel.

Then I don't understand your question.

He/she/it doesn't have a topic, which is why it's asking for suggestions.

Sure - but a topic in what? English language, English culture, English comedy...
What if they were writing a project in American?

Maybe the OP meant something else, but this is what I was assuming:

Oh. That's a bit different from what I was thinking. I assumed they were studying English on their own.
