Kumu Akana's Place Where Pioʻole Training Never Stops..
In Foundations, our Pākī 206 World History sophomores begin to build a kahua upon their identities of knowing who they are, to dig deeper into where they come from and the perspective and bias that we each come with. Here we stretch their understanding about the similarities and differences were between Native Hawaiian and global leadership expectations. We will also explore the importance of language, culture, perspective and also learned about the beginning of civilizations, collective knowledge, and how that knowledge impacted the human environment through Geography and the Mālama Honua Voyage.
In Multiple Perspectives: Navigating Conflict, our haumāna learned that we are all products of our environment - additionally, we broaden our kahua to understand that how we think, re-act, behave will influence someone. We discussed how leaders make decisions under pressure and how it affects the communities around them through the examples of Ghandi, Martin Luther and other world leaders who've impacted history. We will also select our topics for our Final projects in Q4.
In E Hoʻohuli: Revolutions & Expansions, our haumāna learned about the Enlightenment, the Golden Age, the Thinkers and Philosophers who shaped the way mainstream society thinks and behaves, and how the Nations began to form spheres of global influence through trade, politics, economies, and other international government agreements.
In Kū I Ke Ao: Globalization, our haumāna continue to learn about the post World War conflicts that are affected by the Treaty of Versailles and other international agreements between global leaders and their powerful nations.
Finally, in Ka Huli Au ʻAna; Advocating for Change - We will return to the native perspective and try to triangulate our position in this process during our last Socratic Session of the year. We will also wrap up our major projects in Kahiau 2016 and Global Natural History Day Project OR Tools of Ancient Civilizations Report, students will put together everything they've learned in an independent action project and report their progress, findings, and learning in their own online sites here!
