TWU Offers Little Chapel Wedding Package
TWU To Host Korean Teachers
DENTON — Texas
Woman's University will host two teachers from Korea who will spend
two weeks in Denton as part of a secondary school training and American
culture immersion program.
The teachers will arrive
in Denton on Feb. 1 as part of the Third Annual Fulbright American
Studies Institute for Korean Secondary School Teachers of English.
The Texas International Education Consortium (TIEC) conducts the
institute, and TWU is one of 32 universities that have partnered
with TIEC for this year's program. Institute participants are selected
from middle and high schools throughout the Republic of Korea.
During their stay, participants
complete five weeks of coursework in Austin and two weeks of secondary
school site residency in public school districts across the state.
The two teachers TWU is hosting — Kim “Sally”
Soohee and Choi “Maylynn” Sunhwa — will do their
two-week residency at Calhoun Middle School in Denton.
The two-week residency
exposes institute participants to a cross-section of typical middle-school
activities, under the mentorship of local teachers. Participants
will observe and participate in English as a Second Language, mainstream
English, world cultures, world geography and world history classes.
They will also give cultural presentations on Korea, interview local
school officials, students, and their parents and take part in after-school
and community activities.
