Ne'epapa Ka Hana Teacher Institute

We would like to invite you to participate in the Ne‘epapa Ka Hana (NKH) 2.0, a federally funded program aimed towards improving middle school mathematics education in Hawaiʻi. The evidenced-based NKH model provides technology-enabled and socio-culturally responsive curriculum and training for improving inclusive mathematics pedagogy in Hawai‘i. NKH model has been successfully validated for 8th-grade classrooms through increasing the engagement and achievement of all students including Native Hawaiians, students at-risk of school failure, and students with special needs. Now, we are expanding our service to grades six and seven and therefore, inviting all middle school mathematics teachers to join this program.

We have designed a series of Professional Development courses that will familiarize you with the concepts and skills needed to successfully implement the NKH curricula. The first installment of this series is a free virtual Summer Institute delivered asynchronously online. To successfully complete the online course, it is only required to watch 10 mini presentations, consult the corresponding handouts and complete a written reflection at the end of each lesson. Completion of the lessons will be compensated with a stipend at the rate of $180 per day, $540 total, approved by the Hawai‘i DOE or Professional Development credit through Project Inspire.

The goal of this Summer Institute is to make teaching mathematics less challenging and much more rewarding through the introduction of the authentic and inclusive social learning model.
