Time Factors

History Fair now uses a PowerPoint-based presentation for its introductions. Therefore, we do not travel from room-to-room but request that you reserve a central room for the presentations. In order to provide an effective, interactive presentation, however, CMHEC staff still prefers to do presentations to 1-2 classes (20-40 students) at a time rather than large groups in an auditorium.  Each History Fair Partner is allotted one school visit.  With that in mind, please address the following:

Number of presentations requested comprising students, from number of classes, belonging to teachers.

First Session Begins at : Last session ends at: 
Length of presentation period: (minutes) Grades participating: 
Name of course(s): 
CMHEC has a full Introduction to Becoming a Student Historian PowerPoint presentation online now that can be downloaded and presented.  If the teacher uses the presentation in class before the History Fair staff visit, we can focus on a particular aspect of doing the project (such as thesis or analyzing sources).  Otherwise, the school visit will present the key points of the introductory PowerPoint.

Type of Visit:

How many of them previously participated in HF?
