Korean History & Culture Outreach Seminar - Chicago

Updated: Sep 18, 2019

This year’s one-day seminar will include a variety of lectures, delivered by professors and other invited experts, that will highlight the Korean language, a Korean poetry form known as sijo, and Korean history. Participants will also have the opportunity to try on Hanbok, beautiful Korean clothing, and will have the chance to try out Korean drumming after enjoying a pungmulnori (percussion) performance. There will be a booth on Korean pop culture, an opportunity to make a Korean craft, and more. 

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of Korean-American life and the unique Korean cultural values. This will allow educators to bridge the gap between home and school by grasping concepts that are important to ethnic Korean students and their families. Also, when teachers incorporate the seminar topics into their own classrooms, students with Korean heritage will benefit because they will know that their histories are appreciated, and non-Korean students will benefit from being exposed to additional facets of the diverse American experience. 

The National Korean Studies Outreach Program will offer 5 Illinois CPDUs, a sticker for free parking at the venue, a continental breakfast, and a Korean lunch entirely FREE OF CHARGE for teachers who complete the entire one-day seminar. Participants will also have the chance to win raffle prizes and educational materials.
