Waʻa Talks | Farrington High School
September 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
We are happy to announce the return of Waʻa Talks, now in Year 3!
Waʻa Talks is a teacher professional development activity, where interested educators meet to share learning activities inspired by the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage.
This first Waʻa Talks of the school year will be held at Farrington High School on Thursday, September 15, 2016 from 3 to 6 p.m. This will be the first of several Waʻa Talks held this school year that will focus on the important “what next?” question in regards to sustaining the impact of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage once Hōkūleʻa returns to Hawaiʻi in June 2017. Amongst the topics discussed there will be new workshop opportunities in the PVS Canoe to Classroom initiative, which brings lessons learned from the deck of the canoe to life through links to lesson plan ideas and curriculum resources.
3:00pm – Welcome, Registration & Refreshments
3:30pm – Presentations by Miki Tomita (Polynesian Voyaging Society), Kaʻiulani Odom (Kōkua Kalihi Valley / Roots Cafe), Cory Yap (UH Mānoa / ʻIolani School), Kahi Pacarro (Sustainable Coastlines Hawaiʻi)
