What do students say about NHD? Here’s a few statements from last year!

I really enjoyed doing NHD, and I think it was a really fun thing to do, even it go a bit stressful at times

NHD showed me how to plan for projects and tests long term.

I am so thankful for NHD because never in my life had I worked so hard on a project. I learned so much about history and time management. I will forever be a better student because of NHD.

The second thing I learned this year is that perseverance is key. Especially in NHD, while writing my essay over and over again.

I really loved doing NHD because I got to choose a topic I was really interested in and spend so much time on it.

One of my weaknesses has been time management, so having an experience like this and learning how to manage your time on a long term project is very important for high school.

My skills as a learner developed tremendously during this project.

I took away a lot more valuable knowledge from this project than I thought I would.

I thought NHD was a fun process and a good way to ease into a larger research project. The overwhelming amount of work was simplified into a manageable amount.

I was able to cite some sources that I have never had the chance to work with before (images, news clips, etc).

My teamwork and communication skills have greatly improved, as well as my resilience because of setbacks we had during the process.
