HOʻOKUPU LEARNER & TEACHER RESOURCE GUIDE
A HIP HOP ANTHOLOGY OF HAWAIIAN HISTORY

BOOK DETAILS

  • Dimensions: 8.5in x 11in

  • Pages: 66

Hoʻokupu is a Hip Hop anthology of Hawaiian history created by a masterful team of Hawaiian cultural historians, Hawaiʻi's top MCs, educational consultants, teachers, Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winning hip hop artists, producers, hip hop lyrical advisors, and academic professors. This collaborative project can be used in classrooms as a rich and engaging resource to teach Hawaiʻi's history. As an initiative of education through arts and culture, we optimized this project by creating supplemental resources. Each song is treated as a unit in this Learner & Teacher Resource Guide. Each unit includes a brief introduction, followed by the lyrics, several writing and discussion prompts, and a poetry sample and prompt. A recommended list of sources that can be used to supplement the content areas covered within the song is also included. 

If you are interested in purchasing textbooks for your classroom please request an invoice with a detailed message to info@kahalehoaka.com. Ka Hale Hoaka is a preferred DOE vendor and also a Nohona Hawai’i vendor! This makes the procurement process faster and easier for Hawaii state DOE customers.
