The Hanahauoli Teacher Collaborative:
An Institute for Interdisciplinary Curriculum Design

Our summer Institute is a two-week seminar & practicum experience in the design of thematic units with an emphasis on engaging students in project-based learning. The institute seminars are taught by Dr. Robert G. Peters along with experienced classroom teachers from Hanahau‘oli School. At the seminar, participants: learn with colleagues, hear first-hand from practitioners, observe thematic lessons, ask questions, and explore the challenges and rewards of thematic instruction with individual coaching. The Institute includes the development of a unit draft with outcomes, instructional strategies and assessment tools to take back to your classroom. Work time is incorporated throughout the Institute including access to instructors, resources and small group debriefing.
