Islands in the Classroom


Islands in the Classroom is based on the principle that Pacific Islanders have a sense of unity due to their shared identity and challenges as islanders. The program allows Pacific Island educators to learn more about each other’s respective home islands which will, in turn, strengthen that sense of unity and collective knowledge about pressing issues faced as a region. Collation and distribution of high-quality lesson plans will increase awareness about local Pacific Island communities while simultaneously strengthening core competencies in math and reading.
