Full Day Workshop
This full day workshop is an opportunity for teachers to receive preparation for implementing the program into their classroom or to advance their program to the next level. It includes sessions taught by History Day staff and/or master teachers, including topics such as classroom strategies, approaches to the theme, and methods of historical presentation. Come learn more about the resources and research opportunities available in Kansas, and see examples of successful NHD projects! This workshop is an excellent opportunity to hone History Day skills and network with other teachers.
