Examine the Strategy

The Strategy in Action

The following classroom video segments illustrate teaching strategies that reflect Native Hawaiian values and traditions. As you watch, look for:

  • Hand gestures ("hamau")
  • Classroom management strategies
    • Raising hands
    • Express what you know

After you watch the video segments, discuss these questions with colleagues or reflect on them in your journal:

  1. What are some examples of how the teachers in the video segments incorporated Native Hawaiian culture and values?
  2. How did the teachers connect Native Hawaiian culture and values to what students were learning?
