Mady, Callie; Arnett, Katy – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2019
In the Canadian context, although most considerations for home-target language use are centred on the presence of English in French Second Language (FSL) programs, the increasing number of immigrants to Canada in general and to southern Ontario in particular has provided an impetus to extend the discussion to include the use of languages beyond…

This study deals with the notion that Indigenous peoples are concerned with preserving their communities, nations, cultural values, and educational traditions.

Trudeau, Lyn – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Indigenous representation in various genres has always been questionable in regards to who has a voice, and content that is culturally sensitive and appropriate. This paper critically examines the controversial theatrical play "Pig Girl" (Murphy, 2013) through the lens of Robin Bernstein's (2011) "scriptive things" theory.…

Parker, Lana – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018

Jaeger, Cora – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Tracking the depictions of animals in children's literature through history reveals not only what authors think about animals, but also what they think about the human experience and of childhood itself. As the word "animal" can be used both to mark the similarities and the differences between beasts and men, it makes sense then that…

Loza, Roxana – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Debates about "authentic" children's literature often focus on the question of who can legitimately write children's literature. Therefore, an author's age, race, and/or ethnicity, (dis)ability, and sexuality become important considerations in establishing credibility and authenticity. If we define children's literature by authorship,…
