June 24-29, 2002

Immediately following our Summer Institute symposium on Heritage Learners and National Language Needs, this 5-day workshop (June 24-28) will bring together experts in Samoan Language teaching, teacher training, materials development, and Samoan Language content areas (e.g., oratory, grammar, literature) to share information and to discuss a range of Samoan Language curriculum development issues (e.g., community awareness, literacy education, resources, language structure, and use, etc.). The workshop will be followed by an optional excursion on June 29 (more details to be posted later).

This event is proudly sponsored by the National Foreign Language Resource Center, the Center for Pacific Island Studies, and the Center for Hawaiian Studies on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.
