Homework, 'Ulumua Mahalo Celebration and Project Work Process...

Aloha Kakou,

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves today. I felt honored to be present at such a historic event. I know that the gathering was for our entire Hakipu'u 'Ohana, but especially for you of the coming generations. Much hope and trust is placed upon you to care not only for 'Ulumua, but for yourselves and each other. We must strive to give all we can to the benefit our community. Nainoa Thompson said that 'Ulumua must serve as an avenue for each haumana to develop leadership and kuleana.

Please continue to work on your math and project work.

And also remember when we do projects, we need to start with looking at our standards first, especially those we have not done previously and then look at the benchmarks (details) which interest us. Sometimes we may not find an interesting benchmark, but its better to take care of it now rather than later. I recommend you do the standard and benchmark you don't really care for, because by the time you are a Senior, you will find that the standard you are required to do is the standard you WANT to do.

Second in project work is to think about your project idea and come up with a couple options. Then, draft essential and driving questions based on the standards that you have chosen and that which your Kumu has said is okay for you to attempt. Some light research should be done at this time to get a good idea of what the student wants to learn. When this is completed, the student may move on to the third step.

Third is to work out the rest of Phase one including Project Idea, EQ and DQ (Essential and Driving Questions), Scope, Maoli connection, Calendars, Rubrics, and so on...This is done in the packet which Aunty Tammy made.

Then the next step is to get ready for pre-evaluation by starting your your ppf (project proposal form) under the Kumu's direction and going over the pre-evaluation checklist with your Kumu.
