Curriculum Materials in the Hawaii English Program.
Cooper, Nancy M.
Contrary to the usual design of curriculum materials, those of the Hawaii English Program (H.E.P.) are not handbooks for teachers. The H.E.P. materials--literature, in this case--consist of booklets for students who thus bear the responsibility for setting their own pace according to their interests, needs, and abilities. The total classroom curriculum package contains basic sets of materials, a series of instructional games which teach literary definitions and writing skills, a kit of graduated writing tasks for more direct writing practice, and a teacher's manual. In the H.E.P. classroom, groups of students are involved with various sets of materials, while the teacher is free to circulate, giving guidance wherever necessary. Student reaction to H.E.P., dependent on both materials and teachers, has been encouragingly positive, as evidenced by objective questionnaires and written evaluations. Only the activities and reading which survive extensive testing and evaluation of content and processes have been approved for final H.E.P. production. (JM)
