HSTA Office Hours: ʻĀina Aloha: Rooting content to our beloved Hawaiʻi during COVID-19

Please join us as we explore ʻĀina Aloha and how we might root our content to Hawaiʻi strengthening our HĀ.

Event date: 7/23/2020 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Export event

Join the Hawaiʻi State Teachers Association for an important Office Hours session: ʻĀina Aloha: Rooting content to our beloved Hawaiʻi.

This virtual event will take place on Thursday, July 23, from 4 to 5 p.m. via Zoom.

It is presented by Kuʻulei Makua, an educational specialist with the Hawaii State Department of Education's Office of Hawaiian Education (OHE).

OHE is grounding education in Hawaiian ways of knowing so that all Hawaiʻi may thrive. We look to our Hawaiʻi and ancestral ʻike (knowledge) to plan for our future.

Please join us as we explore ʻĀina Aloha and how we might root our content to Hawaiʻi, strengthening our HĀ, even as we face new models of hybrid learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nā Hopena A‘o (HĀ) is a department-wide framework to develop the skills, behaviors, and dispositions that are reminiscent of Hawaiʻi’s unique context, and to honor the qualities and values of the indigenous language and culture of Hawaiʻi.

Due to the importance of this topic, this session will be open to the public. Registration is required.
