Contemporary Studies in Canadian Curriculum: Principles, Portraits, and Practices

Contemporary Studies in Canadian Curriculum: Principles, Portraits, and Practices

This important new collection addresses the current state of curriculum studies in Canada. The book is divided into three parts, focusing respectively on social identities, cultural perspectives, and Indigenous and environmental perspectives. With contributors from universities across Canada, and with topics ranging from the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge to political freedom in the classroom, from sex education to the practice of close writing, Contemporary Studies in Canadian Curriculum is an invaluable exploration of the principles and practices of curriculum theory.
