Title
Teacher's Work: Changing Patterns and Perceptions in the Emerging School Systems of Nineteenth- and Early Twentieth-Century Canada
Abstract
A study of the themes in the history of elementary public school teachers' work in Quebec and Ontario during the period when state school systems were being put in place and public teaching labour forces were becoming predominantly female. During this period, teachers contended with the introduction of new subjects and methods, the introduction of increasing amounts of paperwork, and a growing insistence on discipline and uniformity in increasingly hierarchical work places.
