National History Day is like the science fair for history! Students select a historical event to research and then create a project based on the theme. Students can choose from writing a research paper, filming a documentary, doing a performance, creating an exhibit, or designing a website. This class is designed to guide students in grades 6-12 through the process to enter the regional History Day Contest. We will explore selecting a topic, research, note-taking, writing a thesis statement, bibilographies, and putting the entire project together. Students will come to class for four hours once a month, and continue their work at home. The fee covers the class and regional contest entry fee. Additional costs will vary depending on the student's project and materials needed. Additional fees will be required for State and National levels.
