I use this form to introduce my students to National History Day. It provides a big picture look at what completing an NHD project entails, but also focuses them on a few Day 1 tasks. After briefly going over this form students will have LOTS of questions. Many of these they can answer on their own with a few google searches and are part of the plan phase. Provide them time to work through these questions before moving on to more specific classroom issues such as due dates.
