Authentic Historical Research: Teaching Grit and Perseverance through the National History Day Competition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session is designed to introduce educators to the process of engaging students in long term projects of higher order thinking nature, based on a historical content of each individual students' interest from anywhere around the world. I begin the National History Day project in September, guiding my students through the process of what it means to be an authentic researcher and historian. From there, students pick authentic topics, tied to a theme, in which they have a strong interest that will maintain their drive to learn for months. The NHD opportunity takes time, but yields amazing results in regards authentic learning and research, grit, perseverance, organization, interview skills, how to evaluate your own work, accepting genuine feedback and making changes, and many more.
