McLean, Lorna R.; Cook, Sharon Anne; Crowe, Tracy
Canadian Social Studies, v40 n1 Sum 2006
Judging from public debate and policy, there is renewed interest about the state of young peoples' civic engagement, their character development and their knowledge levels about public issues. At the same time, there are persistent concerns about the narrow and nationalist construction of the very curriculum which should be challenging young peoples' ideas and perceptions of the world in Social Studies or History curricula. The following article discusses some of the ways in which the Developing a Global Perspective for Educators/Développement d'une perspective globale pour enseignants et enseignantes" initiative at the Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa aims to address the knowledge deficit, the paucity of pedagogical skills and the provision of curricula with preservice students.
