Ladies and gents, you are in for quite a day. You will learn not only the meaning of the Korean word 아무거나, but also about the Phony War, the Fall of France, and the Miracle at Dunkirk.
So…what does 아무거나, pronounced Ah-Mu-Gu-Na, mean? This highly useful word simply means anything. See, we are only 1 minute into the period and you have already learned something new. Isn’t that nice?
Anything is a fairly effective description of what you are allowed to do today. With the exception of simple note-taking and other unimaginative exercises, you can do anything that will effectively communicate the importance of your topic to other students. Your topics are:
- Total War (pg 456-457)
- The Phony War (458-459)
- The Fall of France (459-460)
- The Miracle of Dunkirk (461)
- a live report from the scene
- a press conference covering a breaking news story
- a debate about the issues (“how should we respond?”)
- a military planning session skit (I’ve even got army figures for you)
- a rap (the fact that I didn’t save the Dunkirk Rap from a few years ago haunts me to this day)
- correct someone’s mistakes (ex: how could German forces have prevented the Miracle at Dunkirk?)
- 아무거나, as long as it teaches others and demonstrates that you have synthesized, analyzed, and evaluated the information
