NEW STUDENT-CENTERED WEBSITE GUIDE
Typically, students know the type of final product they will create early on in the History Fair process, although sometimes the nature of the sources may cause a student to turn to another medium (for example, if visual sources are not available or effective for a documentary or exhibit, a student may need decide to write a paper or create a performance instead). In addition to our new category guides, check out online our History Fair project samples or samples from National History Day's Web site:
Knowledge is power -- be informed!
Once the research, analysis, and interpretation is completed students will then turn to producing a presentation of their work for the public. The guides, below, will support student efforts to communicate effectively and imaginatively. CMHEC highly recommends that students read the Rules and Guidelines thoroughly before diving into final production.
