    We are excited to have our students be active participants in National History Day (NHD) project.  This project allows history to come alive with real world experiences. Students explore local, state, national, and world history through a topic that relates to an annual theme, which requires students to think critically and determine their topics' significance over time.  As an inquiry-based project, History Day enables students to examine a smaller event, person, or place in history and relate it to the national or international story. Through the investigation of primary and secondary sources, students learn important research skills and how to evaluate sources.  Students come to their own conclusions about historical significance, and gain a greater understanding of why learning about history is valuable.  Students can choose from a variety of projects.  The following projects can be individual or group efforts:  exhibit, documentary, performance or website.  The final choice is a historical paper and that is individual only.  (http://ny.nhd.org/TeachParticipate.htm)
