Louisiana History Day Professional Development

Educator Workshops and Curriculum

As a part of its Louisiana History Day program, The National WWII Museum hosts a variety of virtual and in-person professional development options for educators.

Educators in grades 6-12 are invited to apply to our 2024 Louisiana History Day Summer Teacher Workshop. Classroom teachers, master teachers, curriculum specialists, and administrators are welcome.


June 25 – 29, 2024

Participants will hear from experienced Louisiana History Day (LHD) teachers, explore the 2025 theme, and learn about the logistics of supporting their students in LHD. The workshop will focus on how to use the framework of National History Day to incorporate project-based learning in classrooms. To culminate the workshop, educators will make their own mini history day projects focused on WWII topics.

Additionally, educators will gain pedagogical tools and strategies to strengthen their teaching of research, primary source investigation, and student-driven inquiry.


Educators will spend time in whole group sessions as well as in independent work time. There will be time to explore the Museum’s galleries as well as field trips to support learning. Free time is welcomed to explore the city of New Orleans.

Educators will receive:

  • Reimbursement for mileage
  • Paid parking
  • Double-occupancy rooming at The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center (across the street from the Museum)
  • All breakfasts, lunches, and two dinners
  • Two excursions/field trips
