Excellence in teaching Canadian History Finalists

Canada's History Magazine has announced the 18 finalists for the Governor General's Awards for Excellence in Teaching Canadian History. Six winners, each of whom wins $200 and an additonal $100 for his/her school, will be announced in November.

The projects sound fascinating and innovative. They include oral history gathering, re-enactments, multimedia, and material history. No blogs involved, so far as I can tell, though, which is too bad. Blogging is a great teaching tool for undergrads, and could be great for school-age kids as well. Not to mention the value to the rest of us of being able to access the results of these amazing projects.
