Kailua-Kona, HI, May 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Islands Society is now soliciting lesson plans from K-5 teachers in Hawaii County, Hawaii for its Pacific Islands in the Classroom program.
Pacific Islands in the Classroom aims to provide a digital compendium of high-quality lesson plans and resources. Lesson plans created by local teachers are shared with other teachers around the world through a custom website provided by the Islands Society.
The primary objective of the program is to pool together the different resources and ideas of these educators in order to fill the gap in island educational resources. A secondary objective is to showcase the talents of teachers from the Pacific islands on the world stage.
“Pacific Islands in the Classroom is designed to inspire and empower students to become ambassadors, advocates and change-agents for island communities by improving knowledge-sharing among K-5 teachers in the Pacific islands,” explains Keiko Ono, Managing Director of the Pacific Islands Society.
Teachers interested in participating in the program should submit a lesson plan to firstname.lastname@example.org.
