Communicating Your Story

One of the exciting features of History Fair is that it gives students the opportunity to present their work in different ways. Typically, students know the type of final product they will create early on in the History Fair process, although sometimes the type of the sources they find may cause a student to turn to another medium (for example, if visual sources are not available or effective for a documentary or exhibit, a student may need decide to write a paper or create a performance instead).

Download these new student-centered category guides to get the full scoop on what it takes to best communicate your argument.  You'll be glad you did!

Knowledge is power -- be informed!

Once the research, analysis, and interpretation is completed students will then turn to producing a presentation of their work for the public. The guides, below, will support student efforts to communicate effectively and imaginatively. CMHEC highly recommends that students read the Rules and Guidelines thoroughly before diving into final production.
