In-School Presentations

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 (registration form below).

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 part of the National History Day “Research Roundup” Program presented by the National History Day Mentoring Program at LaGrange College and the Georgia Humanities Council. Groups with students working on NHD projects are encouraged to register, but all are welcome!

“Research Roundup” in-school programs are divided into three, one-hour sessions. Each is available as a stand-alone program but can also be presented consecutively. Information provided in each session helps students with vital steps in the research process and development of a NHD project.

Session 1:
Forming a (good) Research Question
Primary vs. Secondary Sources and Where to Find Them

Session 2:
Analyzing Research
Drawing Conclusions

Session 3:
Presenting Evidence and Conclusions
Rules & Regulations
