Howard, Philip S. S.; James, Carl E. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
State schooling in North America has drastically under-served Black communities, and much educational research has explored visions of schooling that might provide a more relevant and socially just educational experience for Black students. Toronto's Africentric Alternative School is the product of just such a vision. This article explores the…

Madden, Brooke – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
The author suggests that educators' responses to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada cannot be reduced or reducible to practice without also considering the theories that are enfolded into reconciliatory initiatives and actions. She is guided by the central questions: "How do I understand prevailing constructions of…

Boveda, Mildred; Reyes, Ganiva; Aronson, Brittany – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
As three teacher educators with familial ties to the Global South, but academically trained within the Global North, we adopt a de/colonial, intersectional feminist lens to analyze the "general education curriculum" in the United States. We use testimonios, each told in first-person, as entry points where we situate the entanglement of…

Bacon, Jessica K.; Lalvani, Priya – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Dominant stories, as upheld through K-12 curricula, are influential in reproducing systems of power and privilege in schools and society. In this article, we suggest that stories of people with disabilities are either missing in K-12 curricula, or told in ways that are highly ableist. We use discourse theory as a frame for considering the role of…

Snyder, Sarah N.; Pitt, Kendra-Ann; Shanouda, Fady; Voronka, Jijian; Reid, Jenna; Landry, Danielle – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Medical discourse currently dominates as the defining framework for madness in educational praxis. Consequently, ideas rooted in a mental health/illness binary abound in higher learning, as both curriculum content and through institutional procedures that reinforce structures of normalcy. While madness, then, is included in university spaces, this…

Hillary, Alyssa – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
When we consider disability and the curriculum, we usually mean preparing professionals to work with people with disabilities or including students with disabilities. Here, I provide a personal description of these ideas colliding. It's Fall 2017, and I'm taking a course on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). That means it's about…

Naraian, Srikala – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
As the effects of high-stakes accountability mandates increasingly impact curricular enactments in schools, careful investigations of the "how" of inclusion may allow the disclosure of its complexity to stretch the ways in which it is currently theorized. Drawing on my prior research, I have extracted three canonical elements of…

Annamma, Subini Ancy; Handy, Tamara – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Classroom and behaviour management are often touted as ways to build relationships in the classroom. Yet conceptions of classroom and behaviour management often focus on controlling or eradicating student behaviour; these carceral logics limit the ways educators can build classroom relationships focused on love and respect. Moreover, classroom and…

As European democracies undergo dramatic demographic shifts, they look to civics education to create social cohesion and produce a "democratic" citizenry.

Kirchgasler, Kathryn L. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
This article examines how notions of health and citizenship have become entangled in US science education reforms targeting particular populations.

El-Sherif, Lucy; Sinke, Mark – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
What are the pedagogical encounters through which we learn about hierarchies of citizenship and the positions to which we belong in a nation? In this article, we seek to answer this question by examining the ways Muslim and non-Muslim bodies are spatially related to the settler nation-state of Canada, to reveal how outsider subjectivities are…
