Hawaiian Studies Curriculum Guide. Grade 2.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
This curriculum guide suggests activities and educational experiences within a Hawaiian cultural context for Grade 2 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 text is divided into two major units. 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. In Unit I, the activities focus on an in-depth study of the characteristics of the community and the interdependence within the community. The children are asked to investigate and familiarize themselves with community helpers, the goods and services they provide, and how life in the community today is similar to or different from that of an earlier Hawaii. In Unit II, the activities center on factors involved in community living. The children are asked to study natural resources, their availability and importance in the life of the community, and people's influence on the use and management of natural resources in the community. General appendices include a basic Hawaiian vocabulary, a bibliography, and an index to songs and chants cited in the main text. (KH)
