Tedick reviews post-secondary Hawaiian language immersion programs

Diane Tedick (associate professor, second languages and cultures education, Curriculum and Instruction) has just returned from a week at the University of Hawaii-Hilo (UH-H) where she served an external reviewer of two post-secondary Hawaiian immersion programs within the College of Hawaiian Language. UH-H educators have worked over 30 years on efforts to revitalize the endangered Hawaiian language and culture through immersion education. Theirs is the first post-secondary indigenous immersion effort in the US. It is now possible for students to complete a majority of their education from preschool through the doctoral level in Hawaiian.
