Principal Bulletin Informational

The Sacramento County Office of Education is pleased to offer National History Day (NHD) to local 4th-12th grade students. NHD delivers standards-based, authentic, student-centered, project-based learning to achieve learning goals. This classroom-based program is fully aligned to the new California History Social Studies Framework, Common Core ELA Literacy in History/Social Studies standards, and the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework.

NHD-California has developed an online teacher toolkit which includes the resources you need to implement NHD as a classroom-based assignment. Students who excel in the classroom can move on to the county competition which will take place on March 4, 2017 at Inderkum High School. County champions are eligible to advance to the NHD-CA state competition that will take place in Rocklin on May 6-7.
