In December 2013 we learned that the Department of Canadian Heritage’s funding for the Historical Thinking Project would end on 31 March 2014. To mark this important project’s conclusion, ActiveHistory.ca put together a collection of short essays recognizing the work the project had accomplished and setting out possible directions for the future. The collection of essays covers Historical Thinking practices in the classroom, museum and among the general public written by students, professors, curriculum developers and public historians.
