The Concord Review announces the fourth year of the TCR Summer Program for diligent secondary students of History who want to spend two weeks working towards a serious History research paper of their own.
David McCullough, considered to be one of America’s greatest living historians, author of best sellers “1776,” “The Wright Brothers,” and “John Adams” states: “I very much like and support what you’re doing with The Concord Review. It’s original, important, and greatly needed, now more than ever, with the problem of historic illiteracy growing steadily worse among the high school generation nearly everywhere in the country.”
Sadly writing and composition are vanishing from curricula everywhere in America K-12 education. Happily, The Concord Review offers an excellent summer writing program, but its filling up fast.
There will be three two-week sessions, two in Boston, and one in Korea, and the principal instructors for both have History Ph.D.s, They will be assisted by a recent Honors graduate in History from Harvard College, who is now the Assistant Editor of The Concord Review.
Fifty-three secondary students have signed up for these unique programs, which will guide them in the research for and the writing of strong History research papers on Historical topics of their own choosing. There is research work they have to do before the program, and it is assumed that they will have work to do on their papers when they return home after the two weeks.
The Concord Review has been, since 1987, the only journal in the world for the academic History research papers of high school students, now with 112 issues, including more than 1,200 essays (averaging 7,000 words, with endnotes and bibliography), from students in 44 states and 40 other countries.
