My TEDx Talk on My Book, The Voices of Heaven, in Korean International School (KIS) School Curriculum

My Tedx Talk Introduced to Korean International School (KIS) Social Studies Classes

My Tedx Talk (, in which I discussed how the stories I told in my autobiographical novel, The Voices Heaven, relate to the social injustice issues originating from patriarchal values in Korea and how they STILL maintain dominance over today’s technologically- and economically- transformed, powerful Korea, is being introduced to the students of social studies classes at Korean International School (KIS) in Pangyo, Seoul, this year.

KIS is adhering to Nelson Mandela’s words: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

The attached are lesson plans for discussions of social injustice issues in South Korea, based on the points dealt with in Maija’s TEDx Talk, that have been developed and are in use at KIS. Teachers, librarians, counselors, and so forth, who are working hard on raising the awareness of social justice/injustice issues in Korea and elsewhere are welcome to use these teaching materials in their schools or organizations. The materials can be useful in teaching comparative/world literature classes, as an English literature teacher at Fort Collins High School made use of some years ago, when I gave a book talk.
