NHD is excited to announce a brand-new webinar series for spring 2024. In preparation for the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 2026, this series will focus on new and emerging trends in historical scholarship, unique primary sources, and active learning strategies to help engage students with topics in colonial and revolutionary America.

Thanks to a grant from the Dr. Scholl Foundation, 60 spots (at least one from each NHD affiliate) in the course will be available at no cost to participants.

The course will run from December 18, 2023 to April 17, 2024. Teachers who successfully complete the course will have the chance to receive three graduate extension credits from the University of San Diego or 90 professional development hours. The course will include four live programs, which participants can attend live or watch the recording (specific dates will be announced later). If selected for a spot in the course, teachers agree to lead two sessions sharing what they learn with colleagues and engage in the National History Day program in the 2024/2025 academic year. The details:
