Golden Eagle History Day
Welcome to Lakeside Jr. High School's National History Day Website.
“National History Day is not
just a day, it’s an experience!”
By completing a historical research project like National History Day, students are exposed to research skills that need to be learned and used to guide the historical research. Secondly, the students are exposed to a set of questions about every document a researcher uses when encountering a source.
"What"Students will determine what makes a person or event in history significant to the years' NHD theme and then will choose a topic for their project.
"How"We will follow the NHD rules and guidelines to create an NHD historical project.
"Why"To help students discover the exciting world of the past and to develop the following attributes critical for future success:
• Critical thinking and problem-solving skills • Research and reading skills • Oral and written communication and presentation skills • Self esteem and confidence • A sense of responsibility for and involvement in the democratic process
