Course Countdown: A Quantitative Study of Canadian Literature in the Nation's Secondary Schools.
This report of a study of Canadian literature in Canada's secondary schools is divided into four major sections. The first section describes the collection, processing, and analysis of information for the study. A four page survey was mailed to the chairpersons of English departments in 20 percent of Canada's public and Catholic secondary schools. The second section explains that French schools are not included in this survey because so few French schools replied to the survey. The third section charts the results from the survey of English schools. From an analysis of these figures, it is concluded that outside of Ontario 89 percent of the schools offered either no Canadian literature or only a minimal amount. Based on these same charts, however, it appears Canadian literature will be taught to a greater extent in these secondary schools in the future. Section 4 is a teacher's directory, listing the names and addresses of teachers who have developed courses in Canadian literature and who are willing to share information with others. (TS)
