Overview

This book maps the contours of migrant students' Canadian identity through the diverse ways students perceive Canada, Canadians, and themselves as Canadians in an effort to contribute to ongoing theory-building about Canadian identity. As well, it evaluates social studies curriculum documents and textbooks in order to gain insights that could contribute to ongoing efforts for improvement of such resources. By illustrating the changing nature of Canadian national identity and the need to be sensitive to diverse conceptions of Canada and what it means to be Canadian, this book contributes to ongoing efforts to improve the potential of curricula and textbooks to engage students more fully in the construction of national identities that are both meaningful and purposeful.
