Linking Manitobans with the Developing World
Citizenship as a Core Concept in Social Studies
- provides learning focus at all grades
- prepares students to participate in public engagement
- enhances students’ understanding of citizenship
- prepares students to be active participants in their
communities, locally, nationally and globally
The concept of citizenship must be considered in the context of:
- democracy, human rights and public debate
Students explore citizenship in four areas:
- active democratic citizenship in Canada
- Canadian citizenship for the future
- citizenship in the global context
- environmental citizenship
