    We are all our history. Yet in Canadian classrooms, students are often left questioning how they can study a past that does not reflect their present. Discourses of nationhood often separate “us” from “them,” and despite curricular revisions, the mainstream narrative that shapes the way we teach students about the Canadian nation can be divisive. Responding to the evolving demographics of an ethnically and culturally diverse population, Transforming the Canadian History Classroomadvocates for a radically innovative practice that places students – the stories they carry and the histories they want to be part of – at the centre of history education.
