ADULT HELP WITH HISTORY DAY ENTRIES
Parents and teachers play an important role in helping students complete the process of researching and developing entries.
Following are answers to some questions about adult involvement in the History Day process.
Rule of thumb: Adults can do things with History Day students, but not for them.
It is permissible for adults to help students locate materials and other resources, but they may not take notes, conduct interviews, or reproduce images.
Students may have film professionally developed and use copy services at libraries and archives.
Students MUST operate all the equipment related to the production and presentation of a documentary entry. This includes cameras, video recorders, sound recording equipment, and editing equipment.
Students are responsible for reviewing sources and for deciding on thei
r usefulness for their entries.
Students may/should have assistance with potentially dangerous equipment such as power tools. However students are responsible for the ultimate design, construction, and presentation of their entries.
Students are responsible for setting up their own exhibits and props, and for running their own equipment at all levels of History Day.
