Hawaii Literacy Hui Conference, 1997: Changing Lives, Building Communities. [Videotape].
Darling-Hammond, Linda; Holt, Linda
This videotape presents the keynote speeches of the 1997 Hawai'i Literacy Hui conference on the theme of "Changing Lives, Building Communities." Featured in the videotape are two speeches: Linda Darling-Hammond's "The Right To Learn and Teach: Towards Democratic Education," in which she discusses how authentic assessment in the context of the new literacy is at the heart of a renewed profession of literacy teaching and a renewed democracy for the 21st century; and Linda Holt's "Into the Looking Glass: One Teacher's Self-Assessment," in which she reviews items in her "literacy portfolio" (a rock, a jump rope, a glass of water, a fishing net, a package of bean seeds, a Mobius strip, and a chicken) that serve as metaphors for teachers, the teaching profession, and the teacher's role. The videotape runs approximately 75 minutes. (RS)
