Ready for East Tennessee History Day???
HISTORY DAY THURSDAYS! STUDENT WORKSHOPS ARE BACK
History Day Thursdays! 2014 Schedule: January 9; January 16; January 30; February 6; February 13; February 20; February 27 
Following the past few year's successful History Day Thursdays! afterschool student workshops, the East Tennessee Historical Society NHD staff is pleased to announce that we will be once again holding the widely popular workshops for the 2014 contest season. History Day Thursdays! will be held at the East Tennessee History Center from 3:00-5:30 p.m. and it is a wonderful opportunity for more focused NHD instruction to get ready for the district, state, and national contests. During the workshops, we can discuss the NHD theme and student research, as well as simulate competition day (i.e. set-up/take down time, interview & judging process, etc., etc.). Registration, which is as simple as e-mailing or calling the East Tennessee History Day coordinators, is required to reserve a 30 to 45-minute time slot. 

Registration is required to attend and it is as simple as calling Lisa N. Oakley at 865-215-8828 or by e-mail oakley@easttnhistory.org

East Tennessee Historical Society (ETHS) staff will provide free teacher workshops on the National History Day program. Schools and/or school districts are invited to schedule a workshop as an introduction to the NHD program and competition, or perhaps for more detailed nuts-and-bolts instruction, to go beyond the basic introduction to NHD to focus on researching and developing NHD projects (ETHS staff can model winning exhibit boards, documentaries, performances, and process papers with annotated bibliographies). If you are interested in scheduling a workshop, or just to talk more about NHD resources available in East Tennessee, please call Lisa Oakley (Co-Coordinator) at 865-215-8828 or by e-mail oakley@easttnhistory.org.
