Summary:
As issues of history, memory, and identity collide in society and in the classroom, the timing is ideal to investigate the views of twenty-first-century students. Relying on the theory of historical consciousness, this book presents the results of a comprehensive study conducted with over six hundred French Canadian students, examining their narrative views of the collective past. The authors offer new evidence on how young citizens from various regions and ethnocultural groups of Québec and Ontario think about their national history in the twenty-first century and what impact education, historical culture, and the "real-life" curriculum of meaningful experiences have on the formation of narration, identity, and historical consciousness.
