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.
Online Seminar: Teaching Korea through Children's Literature
In Fall 2020, TEA will offer an 8-hour online seminar to explore exemplary children’s literature about Korea and consider cross-curricular teaching activities for integrating Korea into your K-8 literacy and social studies curricula. Teachers will participate in two synchronous live webinars and one two-week asynchronous online learning module with specialists in Korean children's literature. Offered thanks to the support of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea at San Francisco.
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).

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.
