Unique Opportunity at Upcoming Meetings
The IAR History Day Team has been given a unique opportunity to participate in national speaking and listening pilot that is designed to assess student’s abilities to dispense information through an oral presentation, based on sound research and analysis. Students will be allowed to research a topic, give an oral presentation with visual aids and thoughtfully respond to questions of their peers. Students that participate in this pilot opportunity will receive an Amazon gift card.
This opportunity will allow History Day students to practice their research skills related to their topics of interest. This research will help students to develop their ideas for the regional, state, and national competitions that will take place later this year.
The pilot will be conducted over a week long period. Students that participate must attend the October 9th and October 16th meetings of History Club afterschool. They must also conduct research during the week in between each meeting and be ready to present their findings in an oral presentation using visual aids to their History Day Team peers.
For more information regarding this unique opportunity contact Mrs. Molloy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
