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
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!
