Creative Expression Among Ethnic Groups in Hawaii.
Hayes, Eloise
"Creative Expression" designates a program at the University of Hawaii for the development of better oral language skills among the children of Hawaii. This essay describes the program as it operates in the public schools. A more general account of Hawaiian personality is given; Hawaiian children tend to be quiet and unresponsive in the classroom in a manner which many teachers find disconcerting. "Creative Expression" aims at helping the children overcome inhibitions by speaking, playing games, and participating in adaptations of the performing arts, such as dance, drama, and music. The author tells of her personal experience with Hawaiian children and rates the program a great success. (RB)
