Dissertation Proposal 4 of 4: Timeline

Summer 12 - pre-proposal, lit reviews, submission for B-credit, negotiations for a course (place, time)
Fall 12 - build the course using the village, build in  indigenous, developmental evaluation and sustainability
Spring 13 - submit IRB approvals, paʻa the logic model, recruit teacher leaders
Summer 13 - Alani Summer Institute
Fall 13 - teacher action research and gathering of data
Spring 14 - analyze data, write
Summer 14 - write, collaborate, present

This is a "in an ideal world" timeline that does not take into account the village, the permissions from higher ups, the ability to exist on a non-budget, the recruitment of teachers willing to participate in this work with me, the full time job duties that I already have


the fact that Iʻm supposed to be in 6 or 9 credits worth of my own courses in the Summer of 13 on Oahu when I want to serve my Big Island teachers.

Any suggestions?

As a mother of a Native Hawaiian boy, this is alarming to me. The statistics on our Native Hawaiian students who get into universities or community colleges is pretty good. We can get them in. But the percentage of Native Hawaiian students who drop out after their freshman year is atrocious. We have about a 60% drop out rate after their freshman year. So this is just my letter to him.
Dear Pono,
I just got a newsletter in my inbox from Reed and I was drawn to the article written by Mylion Trulove, your Dean of Admission. He is the one that called and invited you and talked us through the process. 
This is what I found out. There were 5,705 applicants (including you) who applied. Maybe for some this was not their first choice, but I know that Reed was your first choice. They accepted 357 of you. I think Milyon pers…

Cute site for Grammar Posters:

I love the resources on the Internet and while trying to edit  a document for work, I came across this hilarious grammar site that can help students and make them laugh too.
I was looking up semicolon rules and they have it in kid friendly, clear text, hilarious sample sentences and cartoons (my personal fave).

They also offer the cute posters for a reasonable amount, so if you want something to put on your walls for a chuckle, check them out.
