National History Day is the nation's leading program for history education in the schools. Students research history topics of their choice related to an annual theme and create exhibits, documentaries, performances, research papers, and website designs. They may enter in competition at the regional, state, and national level.
Fort Ticonderoga hosts teacher workshops about History Day each fall in the North Country and Strum is available to meet with teachers at their schools to introduce the program.
Teachers and students from Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Warren counties interested in participating in North Country History Day during the 2011-12 school year should contact Strum at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 585-6370.
Fort Ticonderoga offers programs, tours, demonstrations and exhibits each day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 20- Oct. 20. The 2011 season will feature "The Art of War: Ticonderoga as Experienced through the Eyes of America's Great Artists" exhibit highlighting the fort's art collection.
