Silent Voices, Silent Stories: Japanese Canadians in Social Studies Textbooks.
Tupper, Jennifer
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v48 n4 p327-40 Win 2002
Analysis of three Canadian grade 10 social studies textbooks illustrates how the discrimination and persecution endured by Japanese Canadians have been marginalized. As long as textbooks present perspectives of the dominant social group, inequalities embedded in society will remain hidden. Using textbooks critically to interrogate biases inherent in dominant narratives will deepen students' understandings of society. (Contains 27 references.) (TD)
