Democratizing Our Youth: Citizenship, Community and Governance
McVeigh, Ryan; Barnett, Jennifer
Canadian Social Studies, v43 n1 Spr 2010
In this paper we argue that the inherent flaw in the current Ontario civics curriculum is that it is too heavily influenced by the functional aspects of "what is" Canada, rather than giving the opportunity to experience the emotional qualities of what it means to be Canadian. Creating a community of learners based on the caveats of citizenship and good governance is the key element to the revitalization of a deteriorating democracy. (Contains 3 notes.)
