The National History Day model is a PBL that promotes and builds inquiry and critical thinking skills while giving students as individuals or groups choice of topic and format. The model addresses many standards in both the ELA and Social Studies curricula, as well as other subjects depending on the topic chosen. In this session, participants will explore a variety of resources to use while managing students working on a variety of topics. Some of these tools include interactive resources on DocsTeach and leveled reading in Britannica. Participants will take on the role of middle and high school students as they choose topics related to a theme, choose format (including website and documentary creation), and find appropriate, reliable resources for research. Participants will share their ideas and discoveries with others in the room through online discussion. Once the PBL is completed, students and teachers can choose to enter regional, state, and national competitions.
