BHS_SOCIAL STUDIES 10 HISTORY DAY PROJECT: 1. Define Topic

Assignment

                                                                                  

Research and Sections of a History Day Project

Research is the most important part of a History Day project. You will read sources (books,

articles, websites, and more) and take notes. You will learn why your topic is important in history.

You will use this information to create your History Day project and write the thesis and text for

each section of your project.

Go beyond just researching what happened during the main events of your topic. You need to

learn about what happened before, during, and after your topic.

The information that you find in each of these areas will be part of your final project. Each type of

project should have sections to discuss what happened before, during, and after the main events

of your topic. These might be:

 Sections on an Exhibit

 Pages on a Website,

 Segments of your Documentary

 Scenes in a Performance

 Parts of a Research Paper
