History Day is a theme-based research program that breathes life into California Content standards and reading/language arts themes. This year's theme is Breaking Barriers in History.  The intentional selection of the theme for NHD was 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an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding.

The NHD theme provided a focused way to increase students' historical understanding by developing a lens to read history, an organizational structure that helped students place information in the correct context and finally, the ability to see connections over time.

History Day can be a part of your core curriculum, both English/Language Arts and History/Social Science. Tulare County Office of Education can assist with resources and technical expertise. A list of which Common Core standards related to the 2020 theme, Breaking Barriers in History, will be provided as a downloadable by NHD.
