Levels of Completion

Capstone Level Projects

Students will work on a project to be completed by the end of their level participation for each track. Each capstone level project is a component of a student's Hawaiian language autobiography (to be completed at the end of their enrolled track). Students who are enrolled simultaneously in Track 1 - Written Hawaiian Language and Track 2- Spoken Hawaiian Language will further develop the same component per level. The scope and sequence of students' autobiography will include and not be limited to (all tracks):

  • Level 1 - Drawing parallel between the Hawaiian natural world and their human experience from a traditional Hawaiian wisdom saying.
  • Level 2 - Researching and reactivating family genealogy from the Level 1 wisdom saying.
  • Level 3 - Reconstructing the climate and context of familial histories from the Level 1 wisdom saying.
  • Level 4 - Exploring and aligning with traditional Hawaiian language models, mediums and forms to produce Hawaiian self-expression.
  • Level 5 - Cultivating a possible breakthrough from Hawaiian antiquity in a modern day breakdown.
  • Level 6 (see section below for details) - Finalizing Written Autobiography Artifact (Track 1), Spoken Autobiography Artifact (Track 2), and/or Community Project Artifact (Track 3).

Please note: Track 3 - Cultural Hawaiian Language will focus on creating a community project.

Capstone Track Projects

  • Level 6, Track 1 - Written Hawaiian Language students will finalize all capstone level projects into a final version of their Written Autobiography Artifact.
  • Level 6, Track 2 - Spoken Hawaiian Language students will finalize all capstone level projects into a final version of their Spoken Autobiography Artifact. This artifact is an audio recording or a video recording of a student reading their Written Autobiography Artifact.
