Barrow co-authors research on teaching controversial topics to middle school students in Korea
July 16, 2019
Elizabeth Barrow, Ed.D., assistant professor in the Department of Middle Grades and Secondary Education, published an article in The Social Studies online journal. “A History Teacher in South Korea: Teaching Elections as an Outsider,” was written by Barrow and Evelyn Alex Ford and provides a detailed recount of a social studies educator’s experiences teaching about controversial topics to middle school Korean students. As a cultural outsider, the educator faced challenges similar to those faced in the United States but the outcomes were very different. Barrow and Ford suggest instruction that may offer solutions to social studies teachers in the United States.
