The topic of my paper is going to be about race in the curriculum. I decided on this because as a future educator my goal is to ensure that I welcome all cultures’ perspectives on materials and subjects being taught in the classroom, and how to work them into the curriculum. The article that really struck me was an article by LeAnne Petherick titled Race and Culture in the Secondary School Health and Physical Education Curriculum in Ontario, Canada: A Critical Reading. It mentions how it explores race that is written into the curriculum and ones that are not.
My plan now is to find two other articles that connect to the article that can help me create an analysis of the article’s ideas and critique the ideas in a positive or negative way. And then relate it to how I would want to include race into my teaching process and the Saskatchewan curriculum.
