Inside North Korea Lesson Plan Resources for The Interview

Ever since the Sony hack and reports that North Korea attempted to disrupt the release of Seth Rogen & James Franco's new movie The Interview, my students have been really curious about what North Korea is really like. 

Fortunately, my brother was lucky enough to travel there years ago. He visited the "Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum" in Pyongyang to learn about their perspective on the Korean War (which you can pretty much get right from the title) and brought back some amazing resources. 

I put them together to create this awesome lesson plan on the Korean War from North Korea's perspective. Students analyze a set of documents and images from North Korea and compare them to how their own textbook describes the conflict and results. The lesson includes 20 pages of images and documents along with a document analysis worksheet, and suggested extension activities. 

This is a really great, engaging lesson plan to help your students understand North Korea. You can download it for use in your classroom by clicking here
