Fullerton School District is a place where learning isn’t just for the students. FSD staff is always learning new and innovative approaches to sharing knowledge with students and improving the learning environment. On November 6, 2019, thirty FSD teachers, administrators, district staff, board members, parents, and community partners will participate in a Korean Cultural Experience. This is an opportunity to learn about the Korean culture, Korean heritage, and eat Korean food. Participants will be taken on a field trip to the Korean Education Center and the Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
The Korean Education Center will feature a hands-on learning experience about traditional Korean crafts, led by a Korean artist who specializes in traditional Korean Art. The Korean Education Center was established in 1980 by the Republic of Korea, an organization dedicated to educating Korean Americans with the Korean language and culture to help students refine their identity in Southern California.
The Korean Cultural Center is the epicenter of Korean heritage in Los Angeles. It welcomes the general public to experience the rich traditions and history of Korea through specialized programs, sponsored events, and multiple learning resources. It is dedicated to providing insight into the cultural heritage of Korea. At the Korean Cultural Center, a docent will lead an educational two-hour tour that consists of a video presentation about Korea, a walk-through around the art gallery, a tour of the Korean history museum, and a self-guided tour around the Korea Center, which mainly focuses on the modern entertainment industry of Korea. This special learning experience will conclude with participants experiencing a traditional Korean lunch before being transported back to Fullerton.
