National History Day - As an 8th grade Social Studies teacher I have seen hundreds and hundreds of students begin to panic the week before their National History Day project is due because they are anxious about what the judges are going to ask them. To help ease their anxiety, I have created this document that has 16 commonly asked questions by judges over the years.
Also provided is a list of 18 terms your students may choose to use during their interview to help them sound more like young historians. Using terms such as analyze, corroborate, generation, and primary source will potentially help them earn higher scores with the NHD project.
This file is set up with 16 text boxes that are fixed in position so answers will be confined to the space provided. This way they are forced into being concise with their responses. I have students type, print, cut out, and practice with each other during the last week before the judges arrive at our school.
I hope this provides your students with a remedy to their natural anxiety before National History Day at your school!
