What is National History Day (NHD)?
Watch this video: 
National History Day is a semester-long historical research project  where students investigate a topic of their choice (although it will need to be related to a 7th grade world history topic). Each year it revolves around a theme; this year the theme is "Triumph & Tragedy in History." There are multiple levels of competition--school, regional, state, and national. Student groups can choose to create a project in one of the following categories: group exhibit, group performance, group website, or group documentary. (No group papers or individual projects are allowed in Mrs. Verner's class.)

In the past, I've had students compete at the national level in Maryland! To learn more, go to YouTube and search "Exploring National History Day." You can also try clicking or copying and pasting the following link:


How will we do NHD in Mrs. Verner's class?
NHD projects will be done in groups of 2-5 students in class. In other words all work on the project will take place in class and will count as multiple grades.There will be time set aside in class, after school, and even on some weekends to work on projects. We will go over deadlines/ due dates, research procedures, etc. in class.
