Vandenberg-Daves, Jodi. Making History: A Guide to Historical Research Through the National History Day Program. Santa Barbara, Calif: ABC-CLIO, 2006.

This book is a guide to historical research, informed by historical scholarship and methods, but designed for use by teachers and students of high school and middle school. It represents a collaborative effort among nine teachers in the D.C. Everest School System in Wisconsin and the historian who served as the project’s Editor and Co-Author, Jodi Vandenberg-Daves. Through this book, teachers and students learn skills and processes for advanced historical research and analysis, directed towards participation in the National History Day program, the nation’s oldest historical research contest for students in grades six through twelve.
