Join us for an introductory workshop that will provide you with tools and strategies for implementing the National History Day curriculum in your classroom. Looking for a new way to make history come alive for your students? Eager to equip them with the research and writing skills they'll need in college and beyond? National History Day in Massachusetts checks all of the boxes: it's a year-long interdisciplinary program for Grades 6-12 that blends historical research, analysis, and creative expression. National History Day is the nation's leading program for history education and engages more than half a million students across the country each year. Students research history topics of their choice related to an annual theme and create exhibits, documentaries, performances, papers, and documentary films, which they may then enter in competitions at the regional, state, and national levels. With generous support from Mass Humanities, we will be offering educators a $150 stipend and 22.5 PDPs upon completion of this workshop.
