Noting Our Impact
Below are a few thank you letters we’ve received from students who participated in National History Day:
A quote and photos from an Electronic Field Trip with a high school class in Paris, France:
“I would like to thank you very, very much for your time and all the information you . . . gave us. Your presentation was very instructive and my students really loved talking to you! . . . I will definitely ask for another electronic field trip next year, with other students!” –Samia A., high school teacher, Paris, France
A note from a student:
I don't want to take up too much of your time but I just wanted to send you a quick note and let you know that your Women's History Museum page was really helpful: http://www.womenshistory.org/education-resources/biographies/clara-barton .
I am a junior in high school right now and have been starting to look at nursing schools to apply to next year. My mom, aunt, and older sister are all in the medical field and I have always wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember. I guess you could say it's in my blood.
Anyways, I have been researching about different women in medical history to write about all of my role models in my college admissions essay and that's when I found your page. I learned a lot from your Clara Barton section. I just wanted to reach out and say thank you! I think it's great that your museum celebrates significant achievements in women's history.
A note regarding our "Determined to Rise" panels:
Thank you all for your presentation last night at the Arlington Public Library. It was informative, engaging, and exactly the type of program that libraries should champion. It is rare to see how history is done, especially in the public sphere. But y'all expertly showed the audience how an historian addresses a topic, defines terms, finds evidence, uncovers the voice of the voiceless, deconstructs monolithic narratives, and constructs a compelling argument. It was masterful. We would love to work with y'all in the future to bring these types of discussions to our community.
A note from students working on a documentary about the Equal Pay Act of 1963:
Hi Ms. Vogelstein,
