When My Name Was Keoko is a touching book about the Japanese occupation of Korea. This final paper asks students to learn about the Korean War, which would have taken place only a short time after the end of the book, and to choose one of the two narrators to tell the story of their experiences in the Korean War.
This product includes a pre-writing/journal assignment to set up the paper, the paper assignment sheet, and the grading rubric for the paper. Also included are the articles I used with my students for background information on the Korean War. I also use this Prezi (which I made for this paper): https://prezi.com/u5pojmzjhur9/the-korean-war/
Using the articles and Prezi in class, this paper has taken about two weeks to teach.
