The TEA Resource Center offers resource materials on Korea for teachers in Colorado.

The collection’s more than 230 items include:

  • The complete collection of elementary and secondary curriculum units from SPICE (The Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education)
  • A 40-volume set of introductory materials on Korea received through the Korea Foundation’s Reference Distribution Program
  • Resources on history, literature, the arts, the Korean language, politics, economics, culture, sociology, and religion/thought
  • A collection of folktales and children’s stories
  • Elementary and secondary units developed by national and regional Korea projects

Circulating print, audiovisual, and computer-based curriculum materials, as well as a professional library, are available on loan to K-12 educators who are able to pick up and return materials to the TEA offices. Audiovisual materials require a refundable damage deposit of $35. As part of the resource center services, project staff are available to consult with teachers and school districts on curriculum design and materials selection. To borrow curriculum resources, please contact TEA staff member Catherine Ishida. Interested parties should complete the Borrower’s Agreement. Most materials are lent free of charge; artifact trunks rent for a nominal fee.
