CMHF Professional Development

The Chicago Metro History Fair provides professional development opportunities to support teachers offering History Fair at their schools. All Professional Development for this school year will take place virtually – not in-person. Planned PD offerings for the 2020-21 school year include:

  • Teacher Kickoff 2021: our signature annual event to help prepare and motivate you for the upcoming season!
  • History Fair 101: learn all the basics of teaching History Fair in one session;
  • NHDWebCentral Workshop: become a master of the NHD website building platform, NHDWebCentral;
  • New Rules and Evaluations: take a deep dive into the brand-new NHD rules and evaluations. The fundamentals are the same, but you’ll learn about the key updates and differences.
  • Ask Us Anything: drop in anytime during the session and ask your History Fair questions to CMHF staff!
  • More to come!

See the currently available PD dates and sign up on our TicketTailor page.
