National History Day (NHD) is a great program to help students in grades 6-12 practice research and critical thinking skills, elements important to their future in the workplace and school. This workshop is for teachers who have worked with the NHD program before as well as those who would like to learn about it for the first time.
Teachers will learn how to implement the program into their classroom and how it aligns with Pennsylvania Core Standards as well as how to hone their skills to ensure their students' continued success. Representatives from Philadelphia’s cultural institutions will share their resources for student research.
For the fifth year in a row, HSP will be hosting the citywide kick-off program for NHD Philly, thanks to the generous support of the Beneficial Foundation.
