Hawaiian Immersion -US History, 9th Grade

Kuanakuhi Pae Palapu

Teacher: John Hoomanawanui

The link below highlights freshmen immersion students engaged in a deep examination of the social incrementalist theory. (Kuanakuhi Pae Palapu) Students we challenged to decide how American led events in history have gradually affected the Hawaiian society and culture from the 19th century to today. This examination encouraged students to research, analyze, and compare newspaper portraits of certain important historical events to ultimately decide how these events affected the health, economy, government, environment, and welfare of the islands. This project culminated in the students presenting their finding to the class using a structured multimedia presentation.
