Teacher Resources - National History Day Mentoring Program
The state of Georgia is fortunate to have a number of teachers who have successfully integrated NHD into their classrooms. These experienced teachers have guided their students to both the state and national competitions and celebrated their success. They are also very willing to share materials and ideas with you. Below is more information about these excellent
teachers and links to materials they have chosen to share with you in the hope
that you will benefit from them.
