"Sounds like you've got a game plan, Great!  Please keep me posted on any challenges or better yet something you find that really works.  We'll add it to the NHD resource page.  Usually a list of Alaskan topics gets put out…"

"Glad you found the class useful.  I'm with ya on the netbooks, they are not very useful for a project like this.  At the very least you should try to get your LA to help with the annotated bibliography and the process paper.  If…"

"It is extremely frustrating to do a computer project then discover a "glitch."  I've gotten better at having a step by step sheet for students to follow, so the savvy kids don't have to wait and the slower kids can at least…"

Elaina Hveding replied to Connie A. Newman's discussion NHD Yea! in the group ASDSA--National History Day Class
"Your flexibility and willingness to incorporate what you can is great.  I love the enthusiasm.  I would recommend that they be introduced to the idea of an annotated bibliography.  Start small, maybe one print source (secondary) and a…"

"If you don't mind me soap-boxing a bit...I'm a firm believer that what makes a great teacher is content knowledge.  There will always be new teacher buzz words and philosophies, but the one constant is the confidence you feel when you…"

"Thanks for participating.  NHD's project categories can be used as guidelines for any topic you want to throw at your kids.  Play with it and have fun!  I really like Weebly too, mostly because it is so user friendly.  I do…"

"I've used Strange Fruit with my 6th graders for years and haven't really had any issues.  I put the lyrics up so they can follow along and we have discussed the Harlem Renaissance at length prior to introducing the song.  I also…"

"Sounds good, please let me know how I can help.  There are lots of ways LA and SS teachers can collaborate on a project like this, and I'm sure you'll get little objection from students if they know that one project will be graded by…"
