Title
Mémoire culturelle et multiperspectivité dans l’enseignement du cours d'histoire du Québec et du Canada : L'exemple de la communauté d'expression anglaise des Cantons-de-l'Est
Abstract
In September 2017, the Quebec Ministry of Education implemented a revised Secondary III and IV compulsory "History of Québec and Canada" program. The author points out that the program confines Quebec Anglophones to the status of foreigners in the province, and does not recognize the contribution and diversity of the Anglophone community in Quebec. Beyond the political issue that resulted from this myopic nationalist interpretation of the province's history, the author points out that by not recognizing oneself in the taught narrative could not only have effects on learning as well as the civic engagement of students from groups marginalized by such a history program, but could also impact the learning of all students who will not have access to diverse perspectives of the past. In order to take into account the complexity of the story and the history of the different groups that make up Quebec society, The author offers a guide for teachers by using the cultural memory of the English-speaking community of the Eastern Townships as an object of history. In addition to allowing English-speaking students to recognize themselves from the perspective of a nineteenth-century English-speaking actress (Minnie H. Bowen), the author maintains her guide provides teachers with the foundations of a theoretical model that will allow them to promote the historical thinking of all students by allowing the students to think critically about how history is constructed.
