Carla Peck

Carla Peck is an assistant professor of social studies education in the Department of Elementary Education at the University of Alberta. Her research focuses on students’ understandings of democratic concepts in general, and their understandings of ethnic diversity in particular. The main focus of her current research is on the relationship between students’ ethnic identities and their understandings of historical significance in a Canadian context.

She has published in the journal Canadian Ethnic Studies/Études ethniques au Canada, and in the widely-used pre-service teacher education textbook, Challenges and Prospects in Canadian Social Studies. Before moving west, Carla taught grades 1 through 8 in rural New Brunswick.
