Helping Teachers and Students with National History Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — historydayguy @ 8:13 pm

I hope that this year my posts can be a central clearinghouse for on and off line sources for teachers and student who are doing New York State History Day and National History Day.

1st off, That History Day Gal has posted a suggested Topics list that is awesome and I hope you consider it. We are going to see hundreds of M.L.Ks J.F.K.s Rosa parks and all the big names from the history books. What we want to do for both teachers and students is suggest those lesser known, but equally important historic figures that are all too often over looked. This list is full of New York historic figures and we really hope that you will focus on New York History for this year.

One other plug: We will be celebrating the Quadracentenial in New York in 2009. Beyond Champlain and Hudson and Fulton there is 400 years of history in the region to look back on. Look to the sites, institutions and programs for great topic ideas.

last thing is feel free to post here with your own ideas.
