USC Korea Academy for Educators Summer Seminar







July 20-25, 2014

8:30 AM to 4:00 PM

Montgomery Ross Fisher Building 340 (MRF), USC Campus

All U.S. K-12 educators are invited to register for this week-long conference hosted by the USC Korean Studies Institute and Korea Academy for Educators.

Korean culture—be it history, art, politics, or pop culture has had a major impact on our global 21st century society.  This conference aims to help educators learn and experience diverse aspects of Korean culture, history, and contemporary topics in order to influence teaching about Korea in the classroom.  Come learn from leading faculty experts, educators, artists, and other professionals and spend a culture-filled week in Los Angeles, the city with the largest Korean American population in the U.S.

Other highlights include:

  • Experiencing delicious traditional foods, music & performances
  • Learning how the new History-Social Science Framework includes Korean history, culture, and Korean American history
  • Receiving free books, DVDs, K-12 standards-based lessons and PowerPoint lectures
  • Networking with educators from all over the country
  • Viewing films that can be shared with all your students
  • Discovering teaching opportunities in Korea
  • Deepening your understanding of Korean American students and their families

The application has now closed.  More information about the seminar can be found on the KAFE website.  One Salary Points are available to LAUSD teachers.

This conference is supported by a generous grant from the Korea Foundation, and co-sponsored by the USC East Asian Studies Center.
