Korean War Legacy Project

Teaching Tools

Our teaching tools feature inquiries and other activities to help students understand the Korean War


The development of Korean War curriculum is currently underway with an anticipated release date of November 2018. The Korean War Legacy Project will offer a wide range of teaching materials to help students learn more about the Korean War and its aftermath. Our collection of teaching tools will feature inquiries inspired by the C3 Framework and created using the Inquiry Design Model. Each inquiry includes a blueprint, overview of the lesson along with all the sources needed to implement in the classroom. Additional teaching tools focus on geographic information systems, documentary filmmaking, and oral history.

The Memory Bank will also contain valuable teaching tools including our online book on the Korean War and aftermath along with an interactive library of Korean War veteran interviews, maps, and related primary sources. Please find three sample inquiries for “Grades 9 – 12” at right.
