National History Day Summer Institutes

Rational for Summer Institutes: National History Day has organized high quality professional development for teachers for the past fifteen years. The one-week teacher institutes are based on the philosophical beliefs that successful teachers have deep understanding of content knowledge which in turn has a direct correlation on student learning and that students learn history by engaging in historical research. Therefore our purposes for providing summer institutes for teachers are to extend teachers' content knowledge and introduce the teachers to student historical research through the National History Day Program.

Goals of the Institute and what participants say about their experience
