This inventive lesson plan, tailored for 6th-grade students, revolves around the cultural gem of Bongsan Talchum, a traditional masked dance with historical roots as a platform for expressing socio-emotion. Leveraging modern technology, the lesson plan guides students to embody and understand the characters in the mask dance, learning the intricate movements from intangible cultural heritage (ICH) practitioners. This immersive experience not only deepens students’ appreciation for Bongsan Talchum as an ICH but also encourages them to explore and address contemporary social issues, including those related to the environment, poverty, and cultural bias. By engaging students in the reconstruction of the mask dance, the lesson plan aims not only to educate but also to inspire critical thinking and problem-solving, empowering students to contribute meaningfully to the creation of a more sustainable and inclusive global society.
