The newly updated History Day Research in Minnesota website walks students through the process of researching History Day projects. It provides guidance for the research process and recommends research sources available to Minnesota residents. The site is divided into six sections which can be viewed in chronological order or individually. Students can use Research Notes to chart progress through History Day projects. Each of the six sections of this site is built around learning objectives and intended outcomes.
- Understanding the Annual Theme
- Choosing & Narrowing a Topic
- Research Questions & Search Terms
- Background & Context
- Gathering Sources
