Gray Selected for South Korean Education Conference

Nathan Gray, a teacher at Monroe Area High School, has been selected as a delegate to participate in a geography education conference and field study in South Korea during June 2019.  The geography activities on the Korean Peninsula will enable Mr. Gray to gain direct experience with the Korean people and their culture. A one day conference in Seoul, capital of South Korea, will focus on the geopolitics of the Korean Peninsula, and the territorial and geographical naming issues that have persisted since the end of World War II. The field study will include observations at the Joint Security Area of the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea, visits to agricultural and industrial sites, the study of Seoul as one of the world’s largest cities, and the historical and cultural heritage sites representing the Korean Peninsula’s 3000-year history. The Delegation to South Korea is made up of 14 teachers from the U.S. Each of the teachers instructs high school students in the College Board High School Course entitled Advanced Placement Human Geography, which transfers as college credit to many colleges and universities. The Northeast Asian History Foundation sponsors the all expense paid opportunity for teachers to engage in international field study, collaboration with South Korean teachers, and to share their academic expertise in human geography.
