A Teacher’s Reflection of Maryland History Day
Maryland History Day, brought to you by Maryland Humanities, is much more than one day—each student spends on average more than 70 hours envisioning, researching, and fine-tuning a research project. More than 27,000 middle and high school participate in this year-long program. Maryland History Day culminates in a statewide contest, where winners advance to National History Day. Christine Pritt, a former Maryland History Day Teacher of the Year, provides a reflection of one of the many benefits of student participation: building community. This year's Maryland History Day competition is just around the corner on April 28 at UMBC.
