Thursday, January 9, 2020 (Cooperstown, NY) - CCS 7th and 8th Grade Students participated in National History Day (NHD) yesterday at CCS. NHD is a research project competition which challenges students to research, create, edit and revise, produce a final project, and present to a group of judges. The long-term inquiry project, done individually, with a group, or as part of a class, teaches students research and presentation skills. The tenacity needed to complete the project over a period of time and continually revise and improve the product benefits them as students and helps develop the life-long skills needed to be successful in any profession. John Brotherton, CCS 8th grade social studies teacher, Zachary Williams, CCS 7th grade social studies teacher, and Michelle Hitchcock, CCS librarian, guide students with their projects based on the NHD annual theme. Local winners are invited to participate at a regional NHD competition and winners at the regional level will move on to NY State competition.
