Honoring Sacrifice

This volume has been produced in an effort to improve our understanding of the human dimensions of the Korean War. The work of this book seeks to capture the intersection of the work of DPAA and the function of the Korean War Veterans Memorial through multiple lessons, each focused on one academic discipline.

The Korean War and Its Legacy

This volume consists of a collection of inquiry modules inspired by the national social studies standards known as the C3 Framework. All materials strongly reflect oral and artifactual histories the foundation has accumulated, and these curriculum books were written by teachers for teachers in collaboration with scholars.

Exploring and Teaching the Korean War (UK Curriculum)

The Korean War has been called ‘The Forgotten War’. Yet it was profoundly significant to the development of the Cold War. It had a cataclysmic impact on both North and South Korea which continues to affect both nations’ development to this day. And it continues to influence relationships between the USA and China – today’s global superpowers. It deserves more of our attention. It deserves more of our teaching time. This publication aims to help all teachers to see its relevance to their curriculum and to explore and teach the Korean War and its legacy with confidence.
