Suk Massey

Five College Lecturer of Korean

Suk Massey

Herter Hall 728

As a veteran member of the Smith faculty and a current Five College joint faculty member, Suk Massey nurtures in her students a passion for learning Korean language through interactive classroom activities.   She also provides opportunities to experience Korean culture and build relationships outside the classroom through her annual Korean cooking class and the Korean Lunar New Year celebration. Her research interests include curricular strategies for mixed classes of heritage and non-heritage Korean language learners, as well as innovative pedagogical approaches for the digital generation.  Out of her research, she has developed the electronic Korean textbook series, Korean Grammar Essentials for Fluent Speaking for all levels of beginning and intermediate Korean language classes. Most recently, she launched an interterm online Korean intensive study course, a live-lecture class that has drawn students from around the world.  In 2018, Suk Massey was a winner of one of the Smith College Sherrerd Prizes for Distinguished Teaching.
