2023 NHD Georgia "Essentials" Mini-Workshop for Teachers

An examination of NHD Essentials and ways to maximize its impact in your classroom 

July 18 and 19 2023

In Person & Simulcast

Our "Essentials" workshop focuses on introducing (or refreshing) the funamental elements of National History Day including structure, components, and classroom adaptability.  We will emphasize the consideration of the 2023-24 National History Day (NHD) theme "Turning Points in History," research tools and analysis, and category/project completion.  

We will also use the time together to facilitate the creation of tools teachers can use in their classroom to help their students with what is often the most difficult step in a history day project: getting started.  In particular we will focus on the construction of "NHD Walls" using Padlet.  Padlet is a website/app that allows students to collaborate, build, and share bulletin boards known as "padlets."  There is a free version as well as subscription service available.  Each participant will leave the workshop with a padlet of topic ideas and starter resources.  You can review NHD Georgia's "Debate and Diplomacy Starter Pack"  and "Frontiers in History" padlets HERE and HERE respectively.


The goal is for you to leave the workshop comfortable with the program, it components, the 23-24 theme, and ready to discuss it with your students.  Even more, you'll leave with a padlet 'in hand' to help your students launch their program year!


NB: This workshop is being offered in person, but we do have the ability to provide live simulcast participation for those who can't travel to LaGrange.  Please indicate your preference when registering.
