The "Taking a Stand in History" Theme Film Series
Are your students struggling to find a topic? NHDC now has a film series to help your students in the classroom. Each week on Monday and Wednesday throughout the fall semester, NHDC will be releasing a short film from a professor, historian, museum curator, political figure, or community member that answers the question, "If I were a History Day student doing a project on Taking a Stand in History, I would choose __________ because." Links to the films will be available here. Also subscribe to our Facebook page to be the first to see the films!​
