Claudette Roy: The Francophone Perspective and the Social Studies Program of Studies (Part 2)

Duration: 7 minutes, 12 seconds

Claudette Roy discusses the heterogeneous nature of citizenship and identity in Canada, focusing on the Francophone perspective. As a minority, the Franco-Albertan community reflects on multiple identities and visions of citizenship; maintains vigilance around official language rights; recognizes its members as increasingly diverse; affirms its place as a full, contributing member of the larger community; and accepts dissenting voices within the group. (presentation by Claudette Roy, C.M. at the 2006 Alberta Education Social Studies Summer Institute)
