    HD Judge Training 2011 HD Judge Training 2011 Presentation Transcript

    • History Day in Minnesota
      Judges’ Training
    • Debate & Diplomacy in History
      Debate and/OR Diplomacy
      Successes, Failures, Consequences = IMPACT
      A historical debate, not the defense of a personal position.
      An even divide of perspectives is not necessary, but we need to know where the Debate/Diplomacy is and what conclusions can be drawn from them.
    • Judging Criteria: Historical Quality
    • Central Argument: The Thesis
      The thesis statement should provide:
      the basic who, what, when, and where.
      the topic’s relationship to the theme “Debate & Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures Consequences.”
      where is the debate/diplomacy?
      what historical perspectives are clashing?
      an explanation on why the topic is significant in history.
      how did this debate/diplomacy lead to successes, failures, and/or consequences?
      why is it important?
      an argument that can be supported with evidence.
    • Central Argument: The Thesis
      Be wary of “if not for this, than that” or “what if” analysis.
      Have students supported their claims with evidence?
      What is the theme?
      2009 The Individual in History: Actions and Legacies Example
    • Central Argument: The Thesis
      • Look for a thesis statement that contains:
      • A connection to the annual theme
      • A clear argument that can be supported with evidence
      • A statement of impact
      2008 Conflict and Compromise Example
    • The Annotated Bibliography
      By the Rules:
      Primary and secondary sources separated
      MLA or Turabian/Chicago Style citations
      Annotations that explain:
      how the source was used.
      how the source helped in student understanding.
      why it is listed as primary if it is a “gray area” source.
    • The Annotated Bibliography
      Primary vs. Secondary Sources
      Primary: Sources that are created during or a product of the time period being researched. Raw materials that require students to draw their own conclusions. Includes:
      Newspaper Articles
      Secondary: Sources created through research that include an author’s own analysis and interpretation.
    • The Annotated Bibliography
      Things to look for:
      Are the primary sources really primary?
      Are the listed sources providing students with a wide spectrum of information?
      How reliable do the materials appear?
      www.worldofquotes.com vs. www.nara.gov
      Has the student located a reasonable number of sources based on their topic?
    • Judging Criteria: Relation to Theme
      Debate & Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, Consequences
    • Judging Criteria: Clarity of Presentation
