Playing Dolls, Canadian Experience Required

Najat Sinclair-Benrbia

Playing Dolls, Canadian Experience Required by Najat Sinclair-BenrbiaPlaying Dolls, Canadian Experience Required is a real life story that depicts the events of my journey coming to this majestic country, Canada. It is also a story of all the other immigrants who have come searching for new beginnings. Like many before me, I came with hopes and dreams in order to change a corner of my world, but I was faced with discrimination, many hurdles to jump and tough decisions to make in the name of that Canadian Experience. But despite the rigidity and the layering of the bureaucratic chaos in a system that does not seem to work with anything foreign, I came to understand...

Dr. David C. Johnson

In Search of the Blue Lotus: A Feminist Counter-Narrative to the Dominant Hegemonic Discourse

S. Sandra Sukhan

In Search of the Blue Lotus: A Feminist Counter-Narrative to the Dominant Hegemonic Discourse by S. Sandra SukhanMany of us move from childhood to adulthood without much thought of how the events of our childhood impact our lives today. Some memories are happy; others sad or traumatic. Some we remember - childhood play days, the earthy smell of rain after a dry spell, and the feeling a new mother gets when she holds her baby; others we wish to or choose to forget - thick black smoke from riots, feelings of fear because of death threats, and the uncertainty of life in another country. In this very personal diary, Sandra, through a first-person reflexive narrative, shares some of her memories of growing...

Written with gentle humour, often at his own expense, he also comments on the very considerable changes in education in a broad sense during that period.

Heads and Tales

Maggie George

Heads and Tales by Maggie GeorgeAsk yourself when you last stood at the school gate wondering, with other 'perplexed of parent-ville', at the machinations grinding the wheels of your child's school. List the times you waxed lyrical while participating in a playground spleen-venting-fest.

Remember the frustration at the seemingly endless process of 'letting a teacher go' while your child suffered day after day of inadequate teaching. How many of us know the answers...the real answers, which fundamentally...
