History Day Hullabaloos

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

Parents, as the holiday season is nearing we all know that the calendars book up pretty fast. I want to let you in on a few events that are held around the metro to help your students expand and improve their history day projects.

The Hennipen County Libraries have been a fabulous partner in encouraging research through visits to the their facilities. They are providing four opportunities throughout the winter to visit their libraries and receive personalized help with almost any aspect of a History Day project. Bring your students who are curious about narrowing their topics, developing a thesis, identifying primary sources, and using library materials.

History Day staff will also be on hand at the events so feel free to come and ask us the tough questions.  Below you can find the dates and locations of the Hullabaloos, so make sure to mark one of them on your winter calendar now!
