Class description

Multicultural education is an issue of concern in both the United States and Canada. While many students of multicultural education in the United States are aware that Canada has a federal policy of multiculturalism they know little about the specifics of the policy and its implications for education. Canadian students of multicultural education are generally quite familiar with the U.S. literature on multiculturalism and, in many cases, refer to that literature unproblematically in their discussions of Canadian multiculturalism. This indicates a lack of appreciation for or attention to differences between the two national contexts. This course would seek to make students more aware of the social and policy contexts within which multicultural education policies and practices develop.
