Welcome to the Charles County History Day Program. 

What is History Day?

History Day is the school-wide affiliate of National History Day, an innovative nationwide program to help schools invigorate history education in the secondary grades. Students, working individually or in small groups, research historical topics of their choice and create projects that reflect their insight and ideas. Project presentations can be in a wide variety of formats: research papers, museum-type exhibits, dramatic performances, or multi-media documentaries and websites. Each student receives constructive feedback from history and social studies professionals at the school. Winning students in the district competition may move onto Maryland History Day, the state competition, and the top two entries in each category and division at the state contest are eligible to represent our state at the National Day contest.

How is Participating in History Day Beneficial?

History Day program provides an excellent way for teachers to incorporate educational standards and learning goals into their classrooms. It can also be an excellent process to Prepare students for AP level analysis of primary and secondary sources.

The History Day students will:

  • Demonstrate their understanding of an historical event related to an annual theme, with respect to its relationship to other events.
  • Understand what is meant by historical context and be able to relate their projects to events that occurred before and after.
  • Develop alternatives to traditional problem-solving methods.
  • Explore creative ways of presenting historical material related to their topics.
  • Become more comfortable using library and other historical resources.
