SUPPORT FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS:
The National WWII Museum is committed to developing an appreciation of history among all students. We support all students who are developing World War II-themed projects. We also connect Louisiana students who are working on any topic with resources and experts for their projects.
As a student or teacher, some of the helpful items you can access from the Museum include:
- History Day Rule Books
- Explanations of the Annual Theme
- History Day Guides to Researching and Creating Topics
- Primary, Secondary, and Reference Sources
- Preliminary Feedback on Projects
- Connections to Other Historic Institutions and Libraries
- Informational Webinars on History Day
- Classroom Visits by the History Day Coordinator
- Interviews with World War II Experts
We cannot guarantee that we can fulfill every interview request. We ask that all interview requests be preceded by a reading of at least two secondary sources. Please email a sample of questions you’d like answered in advance so that we can locate the appropriate staff member and find a convenient time for the interview.
To access these resources, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (504) 528-1944 x 304
