Ola I Ka Wai (Hybrid)
Only HSTA members are eligible to take this course.
HSTA PD Instructors: Summer Maunakea, Trevor Atkins, Danielle Espiritu
The purpose of this course is to (1) provide educators, staff and administrators with fundamental knowledge of Hawaiian perspectives related to wai, and (2) grow educators’ confidence and abilities to teach about the current events surrounding wai at Kapūkakī (Red Hill) and water issues across the pae ʻāina.
Framed by Nā Hopena Aʻo and ʻĀina Aloha competencies developed by the Office of Hawaiian Education, educators will apply knowledge gained through attending course sessions to develop pedagogical practices and student experiences related to Hawaiian perspectives of wai grounded in Hawaiian language, knowledge, culture, history, and community engagement.
For each “Ola I Ka Wai” session attended, educators will reflect on how the learning in each session will inform their teaching and impact their students. This will be achieved by:
(1) Connecting the content learned during “Ola I Ka Wai” sessions with Nā Hopena Aʻo/ʻĀina Aloha competencies,
(2) Creating/developing, implementing, and reflecting on a lesson with an ʻĀina Aloha concept/Nā Hopena Aʻo focus on its own, and
(3) Creating/developing a unit map for future implementation,
Through these facilitated PD opportunities, participants will apply their learning from the course to their own area of education/interaction with students.
