Continuity in Canadian Studies: High School and College.
Waterston, Elizabeth
As literature reveals both the connections of all the humanities and the continuity of Canadian life, it can provide the Canadian child with a means of fitting his private experiences into a broader context. These facts pose a challenge in creating a continuity between new high school introductory courses in Canadian literature and more advanced courses on the college level. In the university, new areas need to be developed (mixing Canadian, American, British, and translated foreign materials, or emphasizing the local and peculiar within Canada), while older areas need to be re-developed (courses on Shakespeare, Dickens, nineteenth century poets, Hardy). Literature courses would reflect Canada's strong senses of continuity with its past--the old country, its mores, arts, and social patterns--and of dignity, order, and cohesion. (JM)
