National History Day Information

Dear Parents,

National History Day is here!  Each year, seventh grade students dedicate three months towards an influential historical event or achievement.  Content material will also be paired during the project at the same time.  Within these three months, students will:

  • comprehend proper research skills and techniques,
  • differentiate primary and secondary sources,
  • understand bias among news articles, and
  • become experts on their selected topics.  

The majority of research will done in class, however, there will be moments where students will research at home.  With this in mind, please check-in with your child to comprehend the significance of their historical topic. Again, this lengthy assignment establishes a research foundation for extended papers in the future.  This assignment also enhances literacy skills to reinforce writing organization.

 

Please contact me if any question arise.  I’m here to support you and your child.

 

Warmly,

 

Adam J. Flatt
