William Fitzhugh is the founder and editor of The Concord Review, a quarterly journal of history research papers by high school students, available at www.tcr.org. Previously, he taught history for 10 years at Concord-Carlisle Regional HS in Concord, MA. His education writing has appeared in EducationNews.org, the Washington Post’s The Answer Sheet, and the New York Times’ Room for Debate.

About the Concord Review:

Raising the Bar for Expository Writing

The Concord Review acknowledges [publishes] exemplary history research papers by high school students in the English-speaking world. In the almost 20 [30] years of its existence, this quarterly journal has published 748 [1,230] history research papers by students from 44 states and 33 [40] other countries.

The Concord Review seeks to promote nonfiction reading and the development of academic expository writing competence among secondary students. Its “Page Per Year Plan™” suggests that students write a page of test per grade level—on a subject other than themselves—with the corresponding number of sources. For example, 1st graders would write a one-page paper with at least one source, whereas 9th graders would write a nine-page paper with at least nine sources. Such an approach would effectively prepare 12th graders to write a 12-page academic research paper (approximately 3,000 words) that included at least 12 sources as well as endnotes and bibliography.

At the request of student authors, the Review’s National Writing Board assesses the quality of high school history papers. It then sends a three-page report to colleges of each student’s choice to include with that student’s application materials. Thirty-nine colleges and universities—including Harvard, Princeton and Yale—now endorse this assessment service.
