For our 3rd quarter history benchmark, the students of Ms. Laufenberg's class all participated in the National History Day. The idea behind NHD is that each student researches a famous part of history, gathers both primary and secondary sources, then completes the project in however they see fit. The theme of this year's NHD was, "Revolution, Reaction, Reform." Therefore, each student had to take a part of history that had to deal with somewhat of a revolution, a reaction, and then the reform to see where it is now. And I took it from the perspective of one of the influential people in the United State's history; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and how with his nobel leadership, discriminated minorities were able to overcome the struggle, and become equal to everyone else.
