    Construct an informal network of children and adults to study the Canadian Pacific Railway. Participants in Vancouver and Toronto will exploit unique resources in their communities (museums, archives, historic sites, and local experts) to construct and refine historical narratives about this period and its events. Through the use of the Knowledge Forum software, participants will share and refine their narratives collaboratively, learning about the nature of historical evidence and accounts by confronting and negotiating differences in perspective.
