|Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea: Teacher’s Guide||10-12-20|
“Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea: Teacher’s Guide,” presents a collection of 27 prominent folktales from 11 ASEAN member state countries and Korea. Boasting as the first of its kind, the book hopes to lend teachers to instill in their students a sense of mutual respect for various culture and teach them about the similarities and differences on various cultures of Southeast Asia and Korea through folktales. Additionally each story includes “cultural notes” and a glossary to help understand the various local cultural traditions and terms which are used in the stories.
Another source of reference, especially for educators and researchers, is the “Situation Analysis” report. Upon collecting the folktales, APCEIU and its partners conducted a research with folktale experts of the region on the use of folktales in the primary school curricula and analyzed how folktales were used in order to understand one’s own/others cultures. The results can be seen through this report.
