Korean War

The Korean War Module was developed by EASC for educators to infuse East Asian content into the classroom. While designed for the high school social studies classroom, these modules could be used in any classroom. Students engaging in this module will learn about the origins and long-term consequences of the Korean War. The primary learning objective for students in this module is to develop an understanding of how Korea, which had been unified for hundreds of years, could become one of the most sharply divided places in the world.  Module one covers the history of Korea and the relationships in the region through 1945. Module two discusses background behind the start of the Korean War.  Module 3 covers the post-war period for North Korea and South Korea.  Each PowerPoint has an accompanying primary source document, accompanying videos from EASC’s YouTube Channel are also included with each module.
