Social Studies Success

Forty-six CHC students participated in Central Maryland History Day on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Eight student's projects were selected to compete at the state level on April 29th.

Every year National History Day® frames students’ research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for the broad application to world, national, or state history and its relevance to ancient history or to the more recent past. This year’s theme is Taking a Stand in History. The intentional selection of the theme for NHD is to provide an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding.
