Leeward Oʻahu teachers, we have an exciting and new professional development opportunity for you! This course will explore the techniques and strategies behind the Mālama ʻĀina Field School (Field School) at Nānākuli, a program we have been coordinating for the past two years. The curriculum spanning mauka to makai engages students in team-based hands-on activities that inspire investigation and learning, as well as self- and community pride. It also integrates real-world learning as students visit sites both in their communities and outside, guided by environmental and cultural professionals.
Thanks to our partnership with the Hawai’i State Teachers Association, you can earn 3 PD credits by completing the full requirements of the course (for only $40)!
The dates are March 28 and July 17 plus two dates in June and July (of your choice) during the Field School. The program fee is $40, which includes some meals and supplies. To apply, please download the application or contact us at info(at)malamalearningcenter.org. Spaces are limited and the deadline to apply is March 6 so don't wait! Mahalo to the Kamehameha Schools Ka Pua Initiative and Hawai'i State Teachers Association for supporting this course.
