Update October 2018
Thank you for your interest in AncestryProject.ca. During fall 2018 we are transitioning from a membership-based website to a publisher website. In November we will re-launch and feature a book that compiles our full content into a teacher-friendly PDF with tips, teacher’s guide and extended handouts and activities. We will offer free samples of this content to anyone on the mailing list.
If you would like to preview our free samples please make sure to sign up for our mailing list using the form on this page.
Thank you! And looking forward to supporting your teaching and learning through 2018 / 2019!

I checked out your Digital Storytelling course – I think it is upbeat, very readable, and easy to follow.Katya
I used the reading on John McCrae’s Flanders Fields with my intermediate ESL students who found it highly informative, delivered in concise chunks making it easier for them to absorb. It has inspired them to read more about Canadian historical events and the people who shaped them.Monica
