As you prepare to put your project together, remember that your project should tell a story. No matter what format your project is in, it should include an introduction, thesis statement, support and conclusion. When you are putting your project together, remember to make each part of your project distinct so that your audience can process each piece of your argument. Also, consider where you place different information. Where will the audience look first? What information should come before other information? Finally, remember to explain why you included some media. Each piece of media should also include an explanation of what it contributes to the project.
Every project also requires an annotated bibliography of all the sources you used to produce your project. Judges will be looking for a good quality bibliography, but remember that the best bibliographies are based on good research. Annotated bibliographies should be written in MLA or Chicago. The following websites provide helpful information for creating your bibliography.
“Tip:”- Whichever style you choose for your History Day project, be consistent! The judges will appreciate it.
