As such, its primary objective is to foster connections among researchers to build a coherent knowledge base in education across geographic and intellectual borders while at the same time conveying a sense of local place related to the Canadian and Saskatchewan context. Contributions from graduate students are particularly encouraged.</p> https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63018 Foreword 2019-02-07T12:25:02-07:00 Palmer-Clarke Yolanda j.xseaton@gmail.com 2017-11-22T14:16:57-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63021 Connecting “The Roots of Society” with Conceptions of Citizenship through Time 2019-02-07T12:25:04-07:00 Gemma Porter gemma.porter@lpsd.ca <p>This article examines the connections between the development of citizenship education in Saskatchewan and representations of the theme “roots of society” presented in the grade 9 Social Studies curriculum guides used in the province between 1971 and the present. The paper explores this connection by examining the development of the theme “roots of society” and the development of conceptions of citizenship. Conclusions concerning the characterization of citizenship in the curriculum guides were achieved through the implementation of key word frequency analysis. The key word frequency analysis served as the frame to identify and elucidate the representation of citizenship within the 9 Social Studies documents from 1971, 1991, 1999, and 2008. The examination of these curriculum documents revealed that developments in the conception and orientation of the “roots of society” are reflective of changes and developments concerning notions of citizenship. The development of the “roots of society” and conceptions of citizenship education both follow a path from traditional/essentialist representations to critical social justice oriented models.</p> 2017-11-22T14:17:08-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63023 Oh Canada, Whose Home and Native Land? Negotiating Multicultural, Aboriginal and Canadian Identity Narratives 2019-02-07T12:25:04-07:00 Momina Khan j.xseaton@gmail.com Michael Cottrell email@email.com <p>Using autobiographical narrative inquiry methods I seek to explore how the juxtaposition of personal narratives of my children’s lived experiences, with identity narratives held by Aboriginal people and the dominant white society, facilitates or impedes the affirmation of my children’s identity as “multicultural” Canadians. How might such a framing lead to positioning minority children in the margins of social and educational contexts? I begin by telling a mother’s story of my Canadian ‘born and raised’ son’s experience in which he was caught between the dominant and historical narratives of residential schooling structured in Saskatchewan curriculum. I then move into discussing the challenges of the contested spaces of Canadian identity and complexity of negotiating multifaceted, complex, and hybrid identities. I conclude by offering a discussion of the often unexamined perspectives and practices of Canadian multiculturalism by opening a possibility for critical research in the teaching of the social sciences curriculum. </p> 2017-11-22T14:17:10-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63022 Tips for Writing Quality Academic Papers 2019-02-07T12:25:04-07:00 Yolanda Palmer-Clarke j.xseaton@gmail.com 2017-11-22T14:17:12-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63014 Seven Things I learned in Graduate School 2019-02-07T12:25:00-07:00 Maia Gibb ekd565@mail.usask.ca Carolyn Hossler ekd565@mail.usask.ca 2017-11-22T14:17:13-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63019 A Book Review of "Writing your Journal Article in 12 Weeks: A guide to Academic Publishing Sucess" 2019-02-07T12:25:03-07:00 Sarah Keller ekd565@mail.usask.ca 2017-11-22T14:17:15-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63010 Poetry Foreword 2019-02-07T12:24:59-07:00 Momina Khan mak234@mail.usask.ca 2017-11-22T14:17:17-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63007 Parent Invites a Teacher into the Art of Knowing 2019-02-07T12:24:57-07:00 Momina A Khan mak234@mail.usask.ca 2017-11-22T14:17:18-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/62980 The Blossoming Existence 2019-02-07T12:24:38-07:00 Momina A Khan mak234@mail.usask.ca NA 2017-11-22T14:17:21-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63011 The Children of Stone 2019-02-07T12:24:59-07:00 Momina A Khan mak234@mail.usask.ca NA 2017-11-22T14:17:22-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63008 Who are We? 2019-02-07T12:24:58-07:00 Momina A Khan mak234@mail.usask.ca 2017-11-22T14:17:24-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/62915 Seize Possibility not Assumption 2019-02-07T12:23:57-07:00 Momina A Khan mak234@mail.usask.ca 2017-11-22T14:17:25-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning https://jmss.org/index.php/em/article/view/63013 Self Care Reflection 2019-02-07T12:25:00-07:00 Jessica Bauer-McLure jess.bauer.mclure@mail.usask.ca A refelction on the improtance of engaging in self care. 2017-11-22T14:17:27-07:00 Copyright (c) 2017 Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning
