Attention 10th and 11th graders: the social studies department will hold weekly National History Day help sessions Tuesdays after school until 4:00 pm. Originally, these sessions were only planned for last Tuesday and next Tuesday. Social studies teachers Eric Nelson and Christopher Stewart have found it to be exceptionally helpful for students participating in NHD, so it will continue.
The sessions allow students to have in-depth talks about their topics with teachers and to get help with any questions. Students showed excitement for this opportunity and took advantage of the program Stewart and Nelson started.
There was only a small glitch in communication: when Stewart said to meet in his room, Nelson said to meet in his. This error was corrected quickly.
Stewart is also under the impression that this will be the year that NLA sends a student to Nationals.
“This year’s 10th and 11th grade group has the best potential to produce a national competitor than any other back to back class in a while,” Stewart said.
Will you be the NLA’s History Day champion this year? Get some extra help from Stewart and Nelson and maybe you will be visiting Washington for Nationals this year.
