Film Study Project: The Way Home
Film Summary: In The Way Home (2002), a seven-year-old South Korean boy accustomed to the comforts and conveniences of modern Seoul is left temporarily with his grandmother in a traditional village. Born and raised in Seoul, he must learn to live in a tiny community, and he is even forced to live without his video games when his batteries run out. In this film, the students explore the values in traditional ways of life in the face of inevitable change.
In a film study project that supplements the current geography curriculum, students watch the Korean film, The Way Home, and complete four assignments. All media and assignments are online in the Schoology classroom.
