S. Korean Educators Discuss Their Month Learning New Teaching Methods.

Thursday afternoon, 20 math teachers from South Korea wrapped up a month-long visit to Indiana University’s School of Education. The teachers came to the US to learn new teaching methods from IU educators.

One Korean teacher, Evnjoo (Evan-Joo) Kang, says the national math curriculum in her country is very rigid, adding she was surprised to see how her American counterparts use worksheets and activities in the classroom, whereas she strictly lectures in her classroom. She hopes that eventually, South Korean educators will be allowed the freedoms to teach a more varied curriculum.

The IU program is broken into various workshops for the visiting teachers, including some demonstrating teaching methods such as the incorporation of music into the math curriculum.
