Natural Resources Pathway Core

Writing Assignments

Teacher: Kumu Pomaika'i Krueger

Project Description

Research was a large component of all assignments in this course. For the written natural resource management assignment below students were challenged to research and then create a display that was comprised of five natural systems, as well as five human systems. Thorough research and multiple sources were also considered as the written assignments on animals displays below. This assignment also required that students share their findings with the class using a prepared visual that also displayed their research work and challenged students to present their work in a virtual classroom.

Animal Systems 2

Marketing Project / Digital Notebook

Teacher: Kumu Pomaika'i Krueger

Project Description

This course which primarily covers large livestock animals presented students with a real world culminating project. This project challenged students to create possible marketing materials that highlighted the research and findings that they made for their chosen animal. Students needed to consider their audience as they wrestled with the choices associated with how best to present their information. Some chose to create eye catching brochures while others settled on developing complex infographics. Students also learned how to create and maintain a digital notebook for the duration of the 5 weeks that they were in this course.

Project Description

New Tools - Same Objective - Finding a Path Forward!

The IET pathway students are the designers, builders and fixers of the Career Technical Education (CTE) classes at LHS. Despite distance learning in 2020, the objective in the Design and Engineering classes is still to design and create products. With the shops closed, we found new online tools to continue our design work. We even found ways to create physical and digital prototypes.

Hale ‘Aina Project

Teacher Colin Delos Reyes

Project Description

This project challenged students to design their own restaurant. This complex assignment required that culinary students consider all components of what it might take to start their own businesses.

They had to determine who their target market was and then their operating strategy. Next, restaurant layout, equipment costs, hours of operation, and their competitors were all taken into consideration. Finally name, branding, and a logo needed to be decided on. Students were challenged to present their findings by building a website and delivering a culminating presentation.
