From a Mouse to an Elephant: Ontario, Canada, Social Studies Teachers and Their Perspectives on United States Policies
Cashman, Timothy G.; McDermott, Benjamin R.
Research in Comparative and International Education, v6 n2 p161-169 2011
The key objective of this investigation was to uncover attitudes and pedagogical comparisons of a sampling of secondary social studies teachers in three schools in eastern Ontario, Canada. The researchers sought to gain insight into how historical and current United States (US) policies are addressed in the provincial curriculum. Moreover, teachers were interviewed to reveal how US and Canadian geographical, historic, economic and political issues are discussed in their classrooms. Broader implications for teachers in the United States and Canada are also considered. (Contains 2 figures.)
