Teaching about North Korea's Nuclear Program

 

North Korea's recent nuclear test is a reminder of the serious challenges facing the United States and other countries in the region. The video shows high school students doing the role-play simulation created by the Choices Program from Conflict on the Korean Peninsula: North Korea and the Nuclear Threat. Although the video was made before the February 13, 2013 test, it illustrates how well a role-play simulation engages students with this complex topic.

In addition, in the coming weeks Choices is preparing to release a revised edition of The Challenge of Nuclear Weapons. The edition will help students consider President Obama's  goal of a world without nuclear weapons.
