    "The purpose of this study is to supplement a theoretical discussion on teachers’ curriculum literacy by excavating exemplary case teachers for curriculum reconstruction and identifying their characteristics of curriculum literacy. For this, this study conducted a case study based on the materials from the literature. In details, this study selected a book related with curriculum reconstruction written by two teachers who conducted a leading role in curriculum reconstruction in the field and analyzed reconstruction cases that were introduced to the book. The analysis of the materials from the literature in this study was a qualitative content analysis, and the content analysis was conducted focusing on the characteristics of curriculum reconstruction cases. From the results of the analysis, this study found in two teachers' cases the common points as follows. First, the two teachers reconstructed the curriculum by setting up an objective of education for a year beyond reconstructing textbooks to prepare classes by the session unit and positively interpreting the national curriculum. Second, the two teachers showed the recognition that ‘learning’ should be placed in the center of every reconstruction of curriculum and that the curriculum should be prepared and operated with the cooperation of every member of education community. Third, the two teachers emphasized on integrative recognition about the subjects other than the subject professionalism. As a result, the characteristics of complete and flexible reconstruction of the curriculum at a textbook level were shown to the two teachers. In conclusion, the two teachers’ curriculum literacy was found to be extended to a level of ‘writing’ and ‘constructing (exceeding reconstruction)’, that is, beyond the levels of national curriculum and/or ‘reading’ and ‘implementation’ about the textbooks."

    Abstract PDF
    "Unification has a process meaning that promotes the harmony and quality of life of all Koreans, beyond the integration of politics, economy and land. In the meantime, the emphasis was on the logical justification of unification. Among them, the national community approach emphasized the homogeneity of the nations did not recognize the mutual difference, and there was a limitation that it could not accept the korean diaspora. Therefore, it is necessary to acknowledge the differences, to find similarities through the process of overlapping, and to create ""National Commonality"" through the process of expanding them. This integration perspective is presented in this paper as an integrated paradigm through the creation of national commonality. The integration paradigm through the creation of national commonality focuses on the emotional and cultural integration of all Koreans. This viewpoint is also considered to be a point of view for the internal integration of all Koreans by accepting Korean diaspora as a unifying subject. And this paradigm was explored through the case of 'Germany' and the value of 'humanities for unification as a model of the integration of South and North Korea. In conclusion, the integration paradigm for the creation of national commonality will require the intrinsic integration of South and North Korea, and at the same time, the integration of politics, economy, and system should be pursued in parallel."

    Abstract PDF
    Unification is a task that must be solved in order to pursue practical interests and right for the people of the Korean peninsula. However, unless sufficient communication between South Korea and North Korea is premised, it is difficult to achieve unification in a peaceful way. Even if it is unified by various external factors, it will be another cause of conflict, if the people do not have communication attitude. Therefore, communication should be preconditioned in order to achieve peaceful unification and to prepare for the problems that will arise after unification. However, as can be seen from the experience, if we stick to conventional method, it is difficult to expect substantial progress in communication between the two Koreas. Therefore, human-to-human communication of human beings is proposed as a solution. Therefore, this paper first examines the meaning and method of human communication, and examines how it can be applied to the context of North and South Korea. This study will help us to find new directions for communication between the two Koreas and we hope that it will have a positive effect on the reunification of the two Koreas.
