Hawaiian Studies Curriculum Guide. Grades K-1.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
This curriculum guide suggests activities and educational experiences within a Hawaiian cultural context for kindergarten and Grade 1 students in Hawaiian schools. First, an introduction discusses the contents of the guide, the relationship of the classroom teacher and the kupuna (Hawaiian-speaking elder); the identification and scheduling of Kupunas; and how to use the guide. The remainder of the guide is divided into two major sections. Each is preceded by an overview which outlines the subject areas into which Hawaiian Studies instruction is integrated; the emphases or major lesson topics taken up within each subject area; the learning objectives addressed by the instructional activities; and a key to the unit's appendices, which provide cultural information to supplement the activities. The activities in Unit I focus on the "self" and the immediate environment. They are said to give children opportunities to investigate and experience feelings and ideas and then to determine whether they are acceptable within classroom and home situations. The activities of Unit II involve the children in experiences dealing with the "'ohana" (family) by having them identify roles, functions, dependencies, rights, responsibilities, occupations, and other cultural characteristics of the 'ohana. Two general appendices include a basic Hawaiian vocabulary list, and a selection of maps. (KH)
