Bouvier, Victoria – Canadian Social Studies, 2018

Post-truth is defined as "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective…

Saklikar, Renée Sarojini – Canadian Social Studies, 2014
This installation is one of a series made and being made while the author writes a life-long poem chronicle, "thecanadaproject." The photographs were taken as the author sifted through her personal archive--a collection that is at once intimate and filled with fragments from a public repository: that of the bombing of an airplane in…

Norquay, Naomi – Canadian Social Studies, 2014
This paper explores the data produced from an oral history project about a Black pioneer settlement in Grey County, Ontario. Twelve area residents were interviewed and the data produced points to various community practices of both remembering and forgetting.

Cutrara, Samantha – Canadian Social Studies, 2010
Until the grand narrative is recognized as a product and process of power and privilege it can never do the transformational work that it can, and should, do in education. In this paper, I argue that concept learning can be a practical strategy for exploring and deconstructing power that is structured through the grand narrative and manifested in…

Broom, Catherine – Canadian Social Studies, 2010
When Canadian students are asked their perceptions of Mexico, their answers are filled with stereotypes from the media. When they are asked about Darfur, they have no idea what or where Darfur is, or what has occurred there. When they are asked to list the names of famous Canadians they state the names of white men, primarily politicians. When…

Broom, Catherine – Canadian Social Studies, 2008
One of the key components of Social Studies has always been history, yet many of us seldom explore what we mean by history. This paper delves into the meaning of history through an examination of Collingwood's work and a discussion of how we can incorporate twentieth century thought into his work. This paper aims, in Collingwood's words, to…

von Heyking, Amy – Canadian Social Studies, 2004
Two important developments have occurred in the field of history education that have had important implications for elementary school teachers.

Second, we have a better understanding of the cognitive capacities of…

Werner, Walt – Canadian Social Studies, 2004
Political cartoons are animated through visual analogies that imply a likeness between the event portrayed in the image and the issue on which the cartoonist is making comment. Although many kinds of analogies can be used, meanings arise as the viewer is able to recognize and interpret them. This becomes difficult, though, when a cartoon's analogy…
