Summer Institute for Teachers
Engaging in theories and practices of human rights education: A partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Teachers operate on the front lines when it comes to inspiring and informing young Canadians about human rights. The Museum will offer a variety of programming to assist teachers, deepen their knowledge of human rights, and think critically about ways in which to use museum exhibits to support their classroom curriculum and practices.
This Summer Institute, offered in collaboration with the Museum, will examine the theories, topics and issues in relation to human rights education, and will take place in a variety of community-based settings, including the Museum.
