As I’m planning out our first-grade homeschool curriculum and schedule, I’ve been looking for ideas to help teach Korean as a subject. Of course, we do a lot of unintentional learning as we listen to Korean music and watch Korean shows. But I want to incorporate some intentional learning in that too.
In my search, I’ve stumbled on an outline of Korean courses taught by the Fairfax County Public Schools in Fairfax, Va. Each level of courses has four or five themes, and a little bit about each one is detailed on the outline.
Level 1 starts out personal with family and home life, as well as school life being explored. As the levels progress students learn about civic responsibilities, voting, scientific advancements, and more. It appears that the Korean courses are taught in grades 7-12.
Since the actual curriculum isn’t shared online (just the outline), putting together the lessons would take a some work. But combined with some of the other resources I’ve shared (including lessson PDFs from the Korea Society), it’s certainly doable. For me having the outline and ideas is the hardest part of the planning so this might be very helpful to me in the future.
