History Day meets every Tuesday after school in Mrs. Lawson's room, 305. Mrs. Lawson is the advisor and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone who wants to join must do so by October 1 to adequately be prepared for the district event in late January.
A schedule of meeting dates and topics is posted outside of room 30-5 every 6-8 weeks.
History Day is not just a day. It's a year-long experience. Students research a topic they are interested in and tie it to the annual History Day theme. This year, the theme is "Triumph and Tragedy." Student create projects and prepare to compete at the district, county, state and national level. Topics do not have to relate to the grade level history curriculum. They can focus on a variety of interests or historical contexts such as local history, national history, state history or world history. Topics can be centered in the sciences, sports, the arts, pop culture and of course, history.
Any student who wishes to compete MUST check in with Mrs. Lawson regularly.Advisor: Melissa Lawson, Room 305 email@example.com.General meetings for the after school program are typically every Tuesday before and after school for 30 minutes or by appointment with Mrs.Lawson.
