What: a professional development course that challenges teachers to incorporate culture-based educational (CBE) practices and resources into their standardized curriculum as a way to approach western content through an indigenous lens.
The course immerses teachers in CBE methodologies through the use of resources (i.e. professional readings, moʻolelo), a wide variety of presenters who are language and culture experts, and day trips into KS land holdings guided by kupuna and field scientists from that area. This course also provides practitioners time to transform a unit, demonstrate their lesson on peers, reflect on their use of CBE resources, and give and receive feedback to the community of learners in the course.
When: July 15 – 26, 2013 plus 2 continuity sessions in the fall (TBD by participants), 7:30 am – 4:30 pm at KSH Kula Waena. Get 4 B credits upon completion of the course.
