Class Apps: Korean Curriculum/Classroom Strategies

There are currently two video presentations under this category:

Dispelling Myths about North Korea. Historian Suzy Kim from Rutgers University illustrates common myths in the mainstream media regarding North Korea. She demonstrates how teachers and students can deconstruct those myths through critical analysis focusing on Korea’s historical and cultural context as well as a comparative global context.

“Reading” South Korea through Literature and Popular Culture. How can you pair pop culture and literature to teach about Korea? Juxtaposing a K-pop music video and a famous Korean poem, Korean literature scholar Dafna Zur offers strategies for analyzing Korean cultural texts and avenues to access Korean literature in translation.
