Standards-Based Education for Hawai‘i Schools

Pacific Worlds > Education > Standards-Based Education


The Pacific Worlds project has been developed to serve the content and performance standards for K-12 schools outlined by the State of Hawai‘i Department of Education. Because of its cross-disciplinary and holistic approach to people and place, the project addresses Standards from a number of categories, including the Social Sciences, World Languages, and Science.

Click these links to open or download Instruction Guides for Hawai‘i Educational Standards. (These are Adobe Acrobat Reader documents.)

Grade 4: Social Studies
(Geography, History, Economics, Political Science/Civics, Cultural Anthropology)

Grade 7: History
(History of the Hawaiian Kingdom)

Each document includes a table presenting

  • Benchmarks,
  • Performance Indicators,
  • Sample Assessment Tasks, and
  • Sample Instructional Strategies.

The links below will each open a new window showing the Hawai‘i "standards at a glance" for each category. Full documents with detailed descriptions of the various standards can be downloaded from the State of Hawai‘i Department of Education. Here, we present only briefly those standards which we feel Pacific Worlds addresses specifically.
