National History Day: Exhibiting Excellence

Feb 12 2008

In January, the online journal, Common-Place featured the article, Exhibiting Excellence: National History Day and American Educational Reform by Jim Cullen, author of The American Dream: A Short History of and Idea that Shaped a Nation (2003) and history teacher at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York.

Cullen traces the background of National History Day, explains how it works, and how the competition influences teaching and learning history.

The season for local and statewide competitions is beginning, culminating with the national event at the University of Maryland June 15-19, 2008. Visit the National History Day website for information on this year's topic, resources, and competitions.
