This Guide is intended to help students research topics for New Jersey History Day projects. Whether you project is an exhibit, a documentary, a performance, a web site, or a paper, you will need to conduct research and make use of both primary and secondary sources to produce a high-quality project.
Each page in this Guide covers finding tools and strategies for identifying and using both secondary and primary sources in history, with an emphasis on strategies for effective searching.
If you have any questions moving forward, please feel free to contact me using the information on the right. I am happy to assist you with any aspect of your project.
