Huliau Climate Literacy Project
Huliau staff will be hosting a workshop on Thursday, July 29th at 4 pm via Zoom for teachers interested in learning about our Climate Literacy Project. The workshop will include an overview of our free climate literacy resources for grades 8-12, as well as ways that our staff can assist you in implementing customized curriculum in your classroom. We will also share examples of student-led projects focusing on climate change solutions.
The climate literacy curriculum includes both virtual and hands-on, in-class activities which align with the Next Generation Science Standards. Participating teachers can type questions in the chat or can ask them live after the presentation during the Q&A portion. The workshop will last around 30 minutes and the presentation portion will also be recorded for later viewing.
New Virtual Classrooms!
Maui Huliau Foundation and our partners have created two free Google Classrooms for grade 8-12 students and teachers! The Huliau Climate Literacy Classroom and Maui Aloha ʻĀina Virtual Classroom were created to help facilitate ʻāina-based hybrid or distance learning in the 2020-21 school year.
The Huliau Climate Literacy Project was launched in fall 2017, and has since served over 1,200 students at five schools on Maui. The mission of the project is to work with science teachers in grades 8-12 to integrate hands-on climate literacy activities into their curriculum in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards. The goal of the program is to build climate literacy in our community by supporting teachers in teaching about climate change, and to encourage an inclusive conversation about climate change solutions.
For the 2020-21 school year, we have launched new virtual classrooms to help facilitate new distance and hybrid-learning models in response to COVID-19. Our new virtual classrooms page includes Google Classrooms for both teachers and students.
