OISE B.Ed. in Classical Studies (Latin) Degree

I would like to encourage CAC members to write in support of the continuation of the B.Ed. in Classical Studies (Latin) degree programme which has been running successfully for several years at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education (OISE). Some members will have heard the presentation on this subject by Margaret-Anne Gillis, who organizes the programme. The programme is suspended for 2005-06 but will run in 2006-07; its long-term future is under review. OISE needs to be convinced that there will be a sufficient continuing demand for the programme although the numbers entering it in each year will necessarily be small. Letters in support of the programme should be supportive and cooperative in tone, express appreciation of OISE's willingness to offer this unique programme (the only anglophone Latin Teaching programme in Canada), emphasize its value as employment preparation for those students who take it, recommend its continuation beyond 2006-07, and point out that classicists across the country are eager to support it and see it succeed.

Letters may be sent to Dr. Jane Gaskell (Dean), Dr. Carol Rolheiser (Associate Dean), and Mr Mark Evans (Secondary Programme Co-ordinator), all at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, 252 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON, M5S 1V6.

Thanks for your support with this!
