Connecticut History Day

The New Haven Museum supports teachers, educators and students in Connecticut History Day, part of the National History Day program for students in grades 6-12 across the country. This is an excellent way for students to independently study historical issues, people and events that they are excited about.  History Day is about the journey the students take in developing their research, critical thinking and communication skills.

This year’s National History Day theme is Triumph & Tragedy in History.
