Corning Centre Visited over 600 Students during 2012–2013
June 17, 2013
The Sara Corning Centre for Genocide Education has visited over 600 students through its guest lecture services throughout the 2012–2013 academic year. By inviting the Corning Centre to their classrooms, teachers in various school boards created the unique opportunity for their students to receive information on topics such as the legacy of genocide, genocide denial, eyewitness testimony and Canada and the Armenian Genocide. The visits have been highly interactive and allowed students the opportunity to ask questions as they navigate the complexities surrounding genocide, human rights and world politics.
The Corning Centre is dedicated to promoting human rights, anti-racism and genocide education in Canada. Our presentations inspire students to become active voices in promoting diversity and respect for all. We encourage teachers to contact us and book a classroom visit for the 2013-2014 academic year or even for their summer school classes and please stay tuned for upcoming events and classroom resources.
