2018 concentration was on 'HA': Na Hopena A'o, or HA, are learning outcomes rooted in Hawai'i, its people, and cultural history. This DOE initiative is being implemented throughout the state, and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center has gone a step further, to integrate these outcomes with the arts. In this summerʼs professional development for educators, we explored the six outcomes and the six art processes with which they have been paired, to give teachers an opportunity to creatively integrate these outcomes in their classrooms.

WAIVER DAY VIDEO!

Teaching Artists and MACC Program Directors developed lesson plans with various art forms that work well with "HA" standards. Every teacher had the opportunity to experience these lessons first hand with the expert teaching artists at the MACC, and received materials to allow them to take these lesson plans directly to the classroom for use with their students.
Three hundred teachers were involved in their own education that day – and the effects of these sessions will be felt throughout Upcountry classrooms in the school days to come: through the DOE’s “HA” initiative and through the strategies employed in arts integration area-wide - a key tenet of the MACC’s education department for two decades!
