Locating Identity and Gender Construction in a Post 9/11 World: The Case of the Hijabi Girl
Kassam, Alnaaz
Intercultural Education, v18 n4 p355-359 Oct 2007
Thirty years ago, Canada's population was largely homogeneous then. As such, there was no question of what teachers need to teach. However, now that Canada's population has diversified, teachers like the author, ask themselves what culture they need to represent in their class. In this article, the author describes how he lets his class deal with issues of identity and belonging through his English literature lessons. He also describes how his lessons allowed a Muslim girl to express her fear of being perceived as a terrorist through her poem.
