TWU To Host Korean Teachers

1/30/04


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.
