Since 2007, Teaching East Asia: Korea has been promoting effective instruction about Korea in K-12 classrooms through professional development programs such as one-day workshops, summer institutes, online seminars, and special projects.
NCTA-TEA Online Seminar
As part of its NCTA online programming, TEA is offering “Korea (1876-1953): Independence to Division,” a 24-hour online course for secondary (6-12) teachers nationwide. Examining primary and secondary sources, participants consider the impacts of imperialism and independence, political-economic and nationalist ideologies, and globalization on the development of Korea, 1876 to 1953.
In summers 2015 and 2016, with the support of the Freeman Foundation, Korea Foundation and Northeast Asia Council of the Association for Asian Studies, TEA offered summer institutes on modern and contemporary North and South Korea’s history, geography, intra-peninsular and international relations, and transnational cultural transmissions (e.g., K-pop, film, design).
Korea Resource Center
Built with support from the Korea Foundation and contributions from teachers and publishers, TEA’s Korea Resource Center offers teachers a growing collection of curriculum resources on Korea. Print materials are lent free of charge to teachers within commuting distance of the TEA offices; audiovisuals require a $35 deposit. Please see our Korea Resource Center page for full details.
