Title: Curriculum on Chinese Culture for Primary Grades
Authors: Chang, Valerie
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: While doing my O.P. work and later during my student teach­ ing, I became aware of a void in the primary school curriculum. Little or nothing of the different ethnic groups we have here in Hawaii is included in the curriculum, The richness of the numer­ous cultural traditions that exist here is not made available and real to the children. Somehow this void needs to be filled. Fortunately, Ethnic Studies classes are being developed in second­ ary schools here, but nothing is available at the primary school level. In high school Ethnic Studies classes, interest is on the political aspect; however, I would like to expand on the cultural aspects at the primary school level. The intent is to go beyond ethnic songs and dances on May Day or school assemblies and other isolated experiences. Children need to identify how these cul­tural aspects are related to them.
