This free hands-on workshop provides teachers and students with strategies for creating amazing history projects! Using the broad theme of “Leadership & Legacy” as a springboard, you’ll explore how to approach primary source research through a range of historical documents related to the antislavery movement, including letters, diaries, songs, petitions, and government records.

Activities will model research skills such as:

  • collecting evidence
  • analyzing information
  • drawing conclusions
  • assembling your findings into an historical narrative
  • designing a history project as a paper, website, exhibit, documentary, or performance

By applying National History Day methodologies, the “dreaded” history project is transformed into the creation of imaginative, engaging, and meaningful history experiences.

To Register: Contact the MHS Education Department at education@masshist.org or 617-646-0557.
