North Korean Museum Guide Lesson on the Korean War

This amazing lesson utilizes incredibly RARE, hard-to-find documents from a North Korean museum guidebook to analyze the Korean War from North Korea's viewpoint!

These documents give a fascinating insight into the hyper-propagandistic perspective of North Korea and why the current regime is so antagonistic toward the United States. With the current tension over Kim Jong-un's threats and missile tests, this is a wonderful resource for you to use in your classes!

Have your students analyze the wonderfully communist writing style of North Korea, such as:

"Long live peerless Patriot General Kim II Sung!"

"In Defence of Azure Sky of Fatherland"

"What awaits US imperialist aggressors is only defeat and death!"

Included in this download is a 2 page worksheet, 1 page of directions and suggested lesson extensions, and 20 pages of documents from the "Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum" in Pyongyang, North Korea (DPRK)!

You can download this entire resource here. It is truly a fascinating lesson that can be adapted for AP or IB classes down through traditional middle school students based on the suggested extensions and included resources!
