History Day

Parent Letter

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Northwest Academy is excited to announce that our students will be participating in National History Day. National History Day is a nationwide program in which students conduct historic investigations into topics that relate to a national theme. Students conduct research using primary and secondary resources and complete a historical paper, museum-style exhibit, performance, documentary, or website based on their selected topic.

The theme for this year is Triumph and Tragedy.  History Day projects require extensive research, both inside and outside the classroom.  Each step in the process of conducting research will be monitored through status reports and given a grade.  In January final projects will be graded, and winners will be selected to compete against other student entries from Baltimore County. On January 23rd 2018 from 6-8pm we will host our History Day Showcase and Activity Night. We cordially invite all families to participate in our activity night

This project will start in September and will be due in January.  We will use status reports that will help the students stay organized and on top of their projects.  Status Reports and additional information will be located on our History Day padlet: https://padlet.com/dhoke/HistoryDay2019

Additional information will be shared through your child’s Social Studies teacher and BCPSOne messages. Please review the possible topics and all the status reports with your child. I also encourage you to visit the National History Day website at www.nhd.com to learn more about the benefits of the National History Day program.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself or your child’s Social Studies teacher. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

 

Sincerely,

Ms. Hoke
