What does a queer science classroom look like and act like? What are some features of a queer-inclusive classroom and how can we transform from inclusion to integral? Can queer concepts be foundational to our learning? This presentation aims to open conversation about queer concepts and theories in the science classroom to support all learners to seek joy and liberation in science.

The Value of Hawaiʻi 3 Book Study (2021)

This course was developed and written by Whitney Aragaki. She was introduced to this book through two of her Spring 2021 UH-Mānoa professors, Dr. Patricia Halagao and Dr. Kamanamaikalani Beamer who are both authors in this volume. Whitney was so compelled by the stories captured in this text that she wanted to bring it to other HIDOE teachers to ultimately reach Hawaiʻi keiki.
This series features Hawai‘i Island educators Whitney Aragaki (Waiakea High School), Mathieu Williams (Kealakehe Intermediate) and Topher Pike (Honaunau Elementary). Listen in as they discuss the innovative ways they are incorporating place-based learning into their distance learning curriculum, something they like to call “Place Based in a Virtual Space.”
