This week we will be visiting the BYU MOA to see their awesome French Posters exhibit! Please be at class right at 1 PM to turn in homework and pile into our vans. We will be leaving at 1:05 PM sharp. Please bring a phone (with cell reception and a camera) if you have one!
Homework due for this class period:
- Read Korea/Japan chapter of Prisoners of Geography. After reading, write a funny dialogue between North and South Korea, who have very distinctive personalities. For a sample, here is a recent video clip from North Korea. Here is a popular video from South Korea.
2. Start Reading A Woman in the Polar Night. We will be discussing it March 10th. This book may be challenging reading for you so I recommend you start now.
3. Watch Most Dangerous Ways to School Himalaya https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEJpkEctSEA
4. Don’t forget to practice for our next quiz at Seterra!
Very few people have been allowed in to North Korea and to witness what life is actually like there. “Under the Sun”, a Russian documentary about real life in North Korea, available at the library or on YouTube. Before you watch this movie, I recommend doing a little basic background research on conditions in communist North Korea (ask your parents for recommendations on sources they feel appropriate) and read the Wikipedia article about this documentary.
For a hilarious take, try watching the first episode of Crash Landing On You, a fun, cheesy Korean drama about the differences between North and South Korea. There are a few minor swear words in this episode.
A few tidbits from class last week:
Here is the promised video of Cambodian Apsara Dance
Watch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – a beautiful classic Chinese film. This movie is rated PG-13 so please consult with your parents before watching.
The Rescue is a documentary about the real-life rescue of a Thai soccer team from a flooded cave. Available on Disney+. Be aware this story is VERY intense! Amazing!
Check out the Thai water festival!
