Event Details

Local and Global History Using Local Literature

 

The Local and Global History Using Local Literature teacher workshop will feature locally published novels, poems and biographies as tools to aid in teaching local, American and world history.  This will include looking at how to address difficult subjects such as racism, genocide and imperialism in the classroom, as well as using fiction and non-fictional writing in teaching about history.  One benefit teachers will learn firsthand is the emotional and engaging power of such writing to get students personally involved in the subject matter.

 

Attendees will receive:

  • A FREE copy of We Go Jam: Celebrating Our Music, Our Soundscape, Our Hawai‘i
  • Featured books will be available for purchase at reduced prices
  • A FREE Hawai`i History Day Informational Packet
  • Certificate of Attendance upon conclusion of workshop
  • Lunch will be provided

 

Limited travel stipends for neighbor island teachers are available.  Please contact Lisa Yamaki at lyamaki@hihumanities.org or (808) 732-5402 x. 2 for more information.
