Selecting a Topic for Your NHD Project
After deciphering the theme for 2015, students will select a topic for their research. The topic should be narrow and researchable. Selecting a topic such as WWII is far too large. Instead, you should choose an aspect of WWII, for example, FDR’s involvement, focusing on his Leadership and Legacy.
