DMS teacher selected for National History Day World War I program

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Mr. Mitch Meier, a teacher at Dickinson Middle School in Dickinson, North Dakota, is one of only 114 teachers selected for a National History Day® program titled Legacies of World War I . The program is a partnership between the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission and National History Day. Meier will participate in webinars and discussions with educators from around the world to learn about World War I and its lasting impact. As one of the selected teachers, Meier receives free tuition, graduate credits, and materials for the online program.

Each of National History Day’s 58 affiliates could choose two teachers for this honor and the National History Day program in North Dakota selected Mr. Meier. Affiliates include all 50 states and the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, and international school programs in China, South Asia, and South Korea.

“As part of the commemoration of the centennial of The Great War, National History Day is proud to partner with the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission to help teachers delve into the history of this global event,” said National History Day Executive Director Dr. Cathy Gorn. “Mr. Meier will learn about specific aspects of the war he can take back to the classroom to ensure this piece of global history is not forgotten.”

This program is part of an educational partnership with the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, National History Day, and the National World War I Museum and Memorial. This partnership will educate both teachers and school students about World War I through a series of more than 100 teaching events nationwide.
