Turning My Passions Into Actions: Designing Interdisciplinary Curriculum in Kalihilihi’olaumiha


In this session, I will describe the stages of my advocacy project at Kalakaua Middle School, and how my research and reflection from my experiences as a STEMS^2 student lead to the development of the “Predict the Future, Change Your Future” Unit. After further iterations, this unit has lead to the development of a year-long place-based course that integrates interdisciplinary studies into the 8th grade core math and science classes. This pilot course will be implemented at Kalakaua Middle School in the 2020-21 SY. In the spirit of a’o, audience participation is highly encouraged and audience mana’o is always welcome!
