    Abstract PDF
    Due to market opening and increasing international marriage, Korean society is gradually entering a multicultural society. The Ministry of Education. We announced the advancement plan, strengthened education for multicultural students, and carried out multicultural understanding education for all students. The purpose of this study is to grasp the reality of multicultural understanding education centering on elementary school and to present future directions. For this purpose, we examined how multicultural understanding education teachers are carrying out multicultural understanding education at the school site and examined whether their teaching goals and educational contents convey multicultural values in light of the conceptual model of multicultural education curriculum. The research method involved five instructors of multicultural understanding education as research participants, and conducted pre - interviews, class materials review, class observation and post - interviews after class observation. All the researchers introduced elementary school children 's culture of their native countries, and class focused on the culture of customs such as traditional costumes and food. Multicultural Understanding Education needs to consider diversity in terms of target students and culture. It is rather difficult to cultivate empathy and social ability in the global situation by one-time class of first-time students. In addition, It is necessary to make efforts to develop it.

    Heritage Language Teaching for Children of Multicultural Families: At Hamburg’s Korean Weekend School and Japanese Weekend School

    Park Eun Joo | 2019, 3() | pp.24~50 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, a survey was conducted on the current condition of heritage language teaching for children of multicultural families at Korean and Japanese weekend schools in Hamburg. Observations and comparisons were made of heritage language teaching at both schools to confirm whether they were providing education in which the multicultural backgrounds of the students were sufficiently reflected. The observation method was an analysis of interviews with 20 students from each of the schools. The results of the interview analysis revealed that the Japanese weekend school was giving education to the students with consideration of the multicultural backgrounds of the students and that a majority of them had a positive image of Japan. On the other hand, the Korean weekend school did not seem to be giving proper education to the students with an understanding of their multicultural background as a positive asset. Therefore, to facilitate the teaching of Korean as a heritage language overseas, a method suitable for the global age is required that focuses on the current situation of the students and enables them to positively accept the multicultural background that they have, rather than implement ethnic education with priority given to the students’ parents or grandparents’ country of origin.

    Sim, Young-Taek | 2019, 3() | pp.51~74 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In 2018, the Ministry of Public Administration and Security reported that the number of foreigners staying in Korea stood at 1.86 million, or 3.6% of the total population. The 2018 Education, Statistics and Service data show that a total of 121,783 students from multicultural families are attending school education, accounting for 2.18% of the total number of students. 93,027 (3.43%), 18,068 middle school students (1.35%), and 10,688 high school students (0.6%). The language ability and difficulty in Korean language education of multicultural families are leading to difficulties in school life and the relationship between friends. Therefore, as a way to improve their language skills and Korean language education, it is suggested that multicultural families learn more by using children's literature and fairy tales. A learner-centered learning model using fairy tales was constructed to improve the language skills and Korean language education skills of multicultural families.The learning period consisted of 3 months, 12 weeks (12 time), 2 times a week, and 40 minutes of each class. Using this learning model, professor-learning will have beneficial meanings to improve the language skills and Korean language education of certain subjects such as multicultural families.

    WON YOUNG SUK | 2019, 3() | pp.73~98 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    n this study, it is necessary to improve the quality of current refugee examination in order to be recognized as a refugee in Korea by examining the status and status of refugees in Korea.In June of 2018, the 'Jeju Island Yemen Refugees' issue, which is at the center of the controversy over Korea's hottest issue, is shaking the foundation of Korea's refugee policy and may be a step forward for refugee policy in accordance with the government's policy actions on this issue. The refugee protection was put on the forking road where the refugee protection could be deteriorated before the civil law was enacted. While comparing the situation of refugees with the situation of refugees in the world, it is criticized that Korea has expanded the outline of the refugee policy. However, it is still criticized that the refugee recognition rate is low and lack of expertise in examination is insufficient. Since refugees are not free from domestic and foreign political problems, the Korean government should ensure that refugees who are staying in Korea are granted basic rights and that they are able to adapt themselves to society as a social integration perspective.

    A Study on the Changing Trends of Refugee Keywords in Newspaper - Using Big Cain's Newspaper Title

    Lee Kyung Min | 2019, 3() | pp.99~114 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, we looked at how the key words in newspaper articles changed the perception of refugees. The difference in the perception of refugees before and after the situation in Jeju Island in 2018 was evident in keywords. From 1990 to 2017, refugee keywords appeared as Western European-centric keywords such as Europe and Africa. However, it was found that it moved to South Korea's center such as South Korea and Jeju Island after 2018. In this study, a fragmentary keyword analysis presented in the title of the article considered changes in refugee awareness. Therefore, no analysis has been made on whether or not refugee-related keywords have a positive or negative impact on recognition. However, studies have shown that key words in newspaper articles affect refugee awareness.

    A Study on Plans for History and Culture Education for Chinese Students in Korea; An Application of theme-based instruction

    Ham Yun Ju | 2019, 3() | pp.115~140 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to select educational content fit for education on Korean history and culture for Chinese students studying in South Korea and search for practical educational methods for it. Chinese learners’ knowledge about the history and language of their own country can be utilized as a resource to broaden their intercultural understanding when they study Korean history and culture. For educational content, the investigator found a topic in Choi Chi-won, a Confucian scholar from Unified Silla, since he was a representative figure of enabling a historical recognition for cultural exchange between Korea and China, organizing specific content and devising proper instructional methods. The study first examined the concept of history and culture education for foreign learners and theme-based instruction, which is an approach to language education that organizes content around a selected topic. One of the theme-based instructional models, the Six-T's approach in Stoller and Grabe(1997) was consulted to design a lesson and organize educational material for concrete lesson examples. The present study proposed a method of history and culture education based on learners’ knowledge about their own culture and language and also their intercultural understanding instead of the old one-sided delivery method of Korean history and culture, thus holding its significance.
