Summer 2017 - Introduction to Project-Based Learning Using the National History Day Curriculum Format, July - August 2017
This course takes teachers and librarians through the NHD process, from choosing a topic to evaluating final products. This course is designed for new and newer NHD (middle and high school) teachers who are seeking ways to engage their students in the process. Teachers are grouped into small learning communities (about 10-12 teachers) who teach similar students. A veteran NHD teacher serves as a mentor to each section and teachers develop and refine the materials that they need to implement this framework in their classroom the very next day.
