Hello Mr. Pitelka,

   I'm not sure what level your undergrads are but
Michael Kalton's book, "To Become a Sage", is
excellent.  It provides a good introduction to Korean
Neo-Confucianism. It also lays out the broader context
and has a glossary listing key concepts.  In addition,
it fits a student's budget.  It's provided for free
at:  http://faculty.washington.edu/mkalton/
All the best, mike ralston.
