Modern History of Hawaii: Instructional Materials/Resources for High School Modern History of Hawaii.
This resource guide contains seven units of study on the modern history of Hawaii. The one-semester course for use at the high school level is a study of the historical development of modern Hawaii within the context of social, political, and economic growth and development of the state. An introductory unit attempts to anticipate future problems and examines alternative futures for Hawaii. In Unit I, "Expansion of Plantation Agriculture," students inquire into Hawaii's economic history up to 1941 by examining the "Big Five" and labor unrest after annexation. Unit II, "The Road to Territorial Rule," attempts to examine the political history of Hawaii from the downfall of the monarchy to 1941. The social history of Hawaii up to 1941 is examined in Unit III, "The Beginning of a New Society." Students investigate the economic, political, and social changes that the war brought to Hawaii and its people in Unit IV, "Hawaii: During and After World War II." Unit V, "Government and Politics," examines the issue of statehood and constitutional revision, politics, and political issues that are facing the people of Hawaii. Unit VI, "Hawaii's People Today," examines current social issues. Hawaii's present economy, its industries, future developments, and current economic issues are examined in Unit VII, "Hawaii's Present Economy." Teaching methods include having students analyze cartoons, conduct a community survey, examine case studies, write journalistic accounts of incidents, critique still pictures, analyze statistical tables, view films, read selections from books, and participate in classroom discussions.
