National History Day Projects Showcased at BOE Work Session!

During Wednesday evening’s Board of Education work session, the audience was treated to presentations by some of the winners in this year’s Long Island History Day Competition. Medalists from both Wheatley and Willets Road gave brief presentations on their research projects, which included websites, papers, documentary films and performances. Students also made it a point to discuss the process they followed in completing their projects.

The National History Day projects have become an important component of our district’s Research Initiative, which has brought together the skills necessary for all students to be active and able researchers in all disciplines.

A highlight of last night’s presentations was Jordan Pollack’s dance performance about Alvin Ailey.
