Huliau Climate Literacy Project
We will be hosting a Teacher Workshop on Thursday, July 29th at 4 pm via Zoom for teachers interested in learning about our Climate Literacy Project. Climate literacy resources for grades 8-12 will be shared and ways that our staff can assist you to implement this curriculum in your classroom.
The climate literacy curriculum includes hands-on activities and aligns 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 guide students to have conversations and complete projects around climate change solutions.
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.
