This course has concluded.
A hands-on workshop series for Leeward Oʻahu teachers of grades 4-12
Back by popular demand, we are offering this course again this summer! Join us to explore the techniques and strategies behind the Mālama ʻĀina Field School (Field School) at Nānākuli, a program we have been coordinating for the past three 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 (HSTA), you can earn 3 PD credits by completing the full requirements of the course.
The dates are May 7 and July 15 plus two dates in June and July (of your choice) during the Field School.
To apply, please complete this online application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Spaces are limited and the deadline to apply is April 20 so don't wait! The program fee is $80, which includes meals and supplies. Mahalo to the Kamehameha Schools Ka Pua Initiative, the Marisla Fund of the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation, and HSTA for supporting this course.
