The Saga of IHU NUI: Economic Man [and] Teacher's Guide. Updated and Revised.
Jackstadt, Steve; Mak, James
This document consists of a second edition of the book, "The Saga of IHU NUI: Economic Man," originally published in 1978, and a considerably expanded teacher's guide to accompany the book. The book itself consists of nine episodes depicting Hawaii's economic development written and illustrated in comic book format. Each episode is accompanied by explanatory material and questions. Episode 1 relates the story of Hawaiian life and economy before the arrival of Captain James Cook in 1778. Episode 2 describes the arrival of Captain Cook and its impact on the island economy. After the publication of "Cook's Voyages" in 1784, Hawaii became an important supply base for ships that crossed the Pacific Ocean, and trade with the world quickly developed, as explained in Episode 3. The story of the development of the whaling trade and its effects on Hawaii are reviewed in episode 4. Episode 5 outlines Hawaiian laws and customs relating to land rights. The development of the sugar and pineapple industries are the subjects of episodes 6 and 7. World War II's impact on Hawaii's economy is discussed in episode 8. The growth of the tourist industry is described in episode 9. Data are illustrated in tables. The accompanying teacher's guide provides suggestions and learning activities for teaching each of the episodes. The teacher's guide is organized to facilitate instruction in Hawaiian history and economics within the context of 11th-12th grade social studies programs. These materials can be used with students at all ability levels and can be used as a basic text or as a supplement to other materials. Materials are organized into specific economic or historical concept units that provide: (1) definitions of related terms; (2) learning objectives; (3) teacher information; (4) student learning activities; (5) answers to stated questions; (6) worksheets; (7) charts; and (8) games.
