As part of the Georgia History Festival (GHF), the Georgia Historical Society will offer a limited number of FREE one-hour in-school programs for local schools, teachers, and students. In-school presentations are delivered on location, at the school by GHS education staff. Programs must be scheduled ahead of time via online registration.
Based on the 2020 National History Day (NHD) theme Breaking Barriers in History, this unique programming focuses on the steps necessary for historical research and completing a successful NHD or other historical research project. Utilizing relevant information and engaging activities, these programs introduce students to the work of historical archives—particularly digitized resources—and demystify the process of identifying and using historical evidence.
The GHS “Research Roundup” in-school programs are a part of National History Day Georgia’s “Research Roundup” program taking place across the state in honor of Georgia Archives Month. National History Day Georgia is a program of Georgia Humanities and LaGrange College. Groups with students working on NHD projects are encouraged to register, but all are welcome!
