• Welcome to the National History Day project introduction. This is a mandatory project for my advanced classes. It will be done mostly independent at home. I will include a few opportunities at school to work on this project, but the majority of the research and writing will have to be done at home. If you don't have computer access, please let me know and we will arrange for accomodations.

    Attached please find the introduction and the first steps assignments.
