Content

When crafting National History Bee questions, our writing team focuses on two central objectives: (1) emphasizing the content found in published Social Studies curricula and (2) utilizing that content in application and skills-based questions.

Specifically, we work and collaborate with the National Council for the Social Studies on content and subject matter initiatives. They were part of a collaborate publication of History Standards (found here) which guide us in every question we write.

In addition, many of our questions emphasize the skills and concepts outlined in the Common Core State Standards (found here). It is important to us that National History Bee questions mirror what students are learning in the classroom.

We are pleased to announce that registration is already open for the 2013-2014 National History Bee!
