One of the comments I most often hear is “I didn’t know about that!” So make sure to stay up to date on all CHD information by liking the CHD Facebook page and checking out the website at www.historydayct.org. You can sign up to be on the CHD eblast list by clicking a link at the very bottom of the website’s home page. There is also a page on the CHD website entitled “Educator Resources.” We already have posted a great list of CT topics for 2017, an updated Student Guide, and information about this year’s 2017 NHD Theme, Taking a Stand in History. Later this month, a revised CHD Educators Handbook will be released.
National History Day (NHD), has a lot of wonderful resources too! Check out their website (www.nhd.org) and Facebook page. National staff conducts online webinars and then posts them online for viewing. The most recent webinar covered the theme of Taking a Stand in History and can be viewed at https://www.nhd.org/taking-stand-history. NHD also has an official Youtube channel and this year they have posted a 4-part video series for new NHD teachers.
We are here to help you and your students have a successful CHD experience. Thank you all for your dedication and support of History Day!
