This paper will evaluate the extent to which grade 9/10 Canadian and World Studies curriculum in Ontario perpetuates a monolithic, nation centered focus of citizenship and history at the exclusion of racialized and immigrant groups, and to what extent it includes racialized and immigrant groups. To achieve this, an anti-racist theoretical framework was utilized and the following themes obtained from the literature review were applied: Hegemony, citizenship education and global citizenship education, and curriculum design. Other sub-themes which have informed the broader categories mentioned above are racism and nationalism.
