Summer is the reason to be a teacher. Those early morning alarms get set later, books set aside during the academic year can be read, and there is time to process, plan, and consider your goals for the next academic year.
As you plan for your goals, please consider the National History Day (NHD) online graduate course being offered through the University of San Diego. We are offering an online graduate course designed with busy teachers in mind. The class will be chunked into sections based on the grade a person teaches, the number of students taught, and years of experience with NHD. There are ideas to be learned for rookies and veterans. Sections will be led by master NHD teachers who will offer tips, insights, and problem-solving strategies.
WHY NHD YOU ASK?
- NHD is a program with proven educational impacts (read more at http://www.nhd.org/NHDworks.htm). The NHD program aligns with Common Core standards and the C3 Framework.
- It’s a bargain! The course costs $600, but this fee includes three graduate credits from the University of San Diego as well as all materials and instruction.
- Busy schedule? The course is online and more flexible for parents and those with summer plans.
We know that in many schools, NHD is a collaborative effort between Social Studies, English / Language Arts teachers, and school librarians. At NHD, we consider ALL of these teachers to be NHD teachers, and this graduate class is designed to address all of these groups. If you collaborate with teachers in your building, you can take the course as a collaborative group. For more information, please contact Lynne O’Hara at Lynne@nhd.org.
