Hardy, Beatriz, Ed.; Gorn, Cathy, Ed.
National History Day, a year-long educational program, fosters academic achievement and intellectual growth. In addition to acquiring historical knowledge and perspective while developing entries and competing in a series of district, state, and national contests, students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that help them manage and use information. National History Day has two divisions: (1) junior division (grades 6-8) and (2) senior division (grades 9-12). Students can enter one of seven categories and are encouraged to choose any topic in local, national, or world history and investigate its historical significance and relationship to the theme by conducting extensive primary and secondary research. This booklet contains the following historical materials:"What Is National History Day"; "Teaching about Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History"; "Theme Narrative: Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History"; "Resources from the National Archives and Records Administration"; "Sample Topics"; "Library of Congress On-Line Resources"; "Bibliography"; "A Research Roadmap for Your History Day Topic" (J.
