Biases and Single Stories

I grew up in a small town, so for a long time I had an extremely biased point of view because that’s how living in a small town can sometimes be. However, once I moved into Regina, I had my eyes opened to the truth of people, rather than racism and lies about other people.Continue reading “Biases and Single Stories” Continue reading

Citizenship

When discussing education, citizen education was not something I would have thought of in all honesty. I remember being told how important Pythagoras Theorem would be and how difficult it would be if I didn’t understand the math, or if I wasn’t able to write an essay on Romeo and Juliet. The importance of citizenshipContinue reading “Citizenship” Continue reading

Treaty Education

In my opinion, the purpose of teaching Treaty Ed or any First Nations, Metis, and Inuit content and perspectives is to bring awareness to the issues that we see in our society today.

For my paper, I decided to choose the topic of Gender and Curriculum. My interest sparked knowing that gender inequity is still prevalent in our society, so I wanted to understand how it was prevalent in the curriculum, knowing full well that I am also the one teaching it.

Are we limited?

I personally have experienced the Tyler rationale through my own schooling by the way in which my teachers would educate us. Obviously, they had their curriculum goals in which they had to get us to, but they all took us in different ways. By the end of what they had taught us, evaluation then tookContinue reading “Are we limited?” Continue reading

Week 1: January 6, 2020

How does Kumashiro define ‘commonsense?’ Why is it so important to pay attention to the ‘commonsense’? Throughout the article, Kumashario defines commonsense as something that everyone in a particular society is expected to know, and not question because it’s simply, “commonsense”. Since this is the case, commonsense that is never questioned might oppress a certainContinue reading “Week 1: January 6, 2020” Continue reading
