      This year, students in grades 6-8 will participate in a History Day.  The theme for this year’s History Day is Conflict and Compromise in History.  Students will be asked to choose a person or event that falls under the theme to then write a research paper and prepare a presentation to present their findings.  One thing to keep in mind, for the presentation, the students will NOT be allowed to use a poster board.  They may choose to create a website, a model, or film a movie.  Regardless of what the student chooses to do, they will only be limited by their imagination and not the poster board.
