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