Apply the Strategy

Design an Activity

In this section, you will design a classroom activity based on what you have learned about Hawaiian teaching strategies from the readings, activities, and videos in this session. As you design this activity, look for ways to make it appropriate both to the grade level and unique traditions and values of your students.

Begin by examining the following resource on Hawaiʻi Alive.


This video segment explores an early Hawaiian cultural tradition.

Now design an activity around the video segment that incorporates the Hawaiian teaching strategy you learned in this session. Use the Hawaiian Teaching Strategies Lesson Template (PDF) to outline your lesson. Be sure to include:

  • learning tasks;
  • how you will model them;
  • what you want students to understand or be able to do; and
  • how you will gauge and evaluate students' understanding.
