The National History Day in North Dakota program offers everything educators need to bring project-based learning to their classrooms. The program integrates with an interdisciplinary, standards-based curriculum and provides students with a variety of choices in topic and presentation. Not only does National History Day in North Dakota offer a ready to implement, “off-the-shelf” project-based learning method, it makes history relevant to students, teaching them how and why to think like a historian. History Day is inquiry-based and incorporates 21st Century skills through collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
