On Friday, January 13th, the history department held a project display in the Media Center at Nashoba. Students were asked to create a visual piece for their National History Day: Quarter 2 Project, displaying the theme of “Take a Stand” within their project. Projects created by students to display the theme ranged from poster exhibits, websites, to even documentaries.
Although the theme of the projects was to display “Take a Stand”, the main topic of students’ work had to be an event in history, particularly from the time period of the early 1900s to 1930. Potential topics for consideration included: Prohibition, Women’s Rights, World War I and various other movements/events within the time period.
Projects were due on the 13th, and the back of the Media Center was cleared in order to put the hard work of the students on display. Students were able to walk around and view the work of their peers, while filling out questionnaires on their opinions of the various projects.
Shown to the right, poster exhibits were lined along tables for easy display. Not shown in the photo were computers that were also available so students could view websites and documentaries that had been created.
National History Day was a success at Nashoba with all of the hard work put in by history students to create impressive Quarter 2 projects and put them on display.
