The grant for Smaller Learning Communities will not only restructure traditional classrooms, but will also change the way in which classroom materials are used. DANIEL JACKSON Staff Reporter Under a federal program that is revolutionizing the way teachers teach, five Hawai‘i schools were awarded $10 million as part of a strategy designed to create a more personalized learning experience for students. McKinley, Pearl City, Castle, Maui and Kapa‘a high schools will use the grants to reorganize traditional, and often large, classrooms into more effi cient “smaller learning communities.” “Teachers should expect revolutionary transformations in the way that we do schooling. In fact, teachers must embrace the changes and play a central role in the transformation,” said Jeffrey Moniz, Director of Secondary Education at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa College of Education, in an e-mail response.

In a Sept. 30 press release, the U.S. Department of Education announced almost $100 million in grants aimed at high school reform and education improvement, with $52.2 million earmarked for Smaller Learning Communities (SLC) programs. The program awards are granted to large public high schools with student enrollments of 1,000 or more to implement smaller learning communities and activities designed to improve student academic achievement. The Hawai‘i schools were awarded $3.4 million for the fi rst two years of the grant, with the balance of the $10 million to be awarded for the following three years, said Ann Mahi, principal of Roosevelt High School and one of the writers of the grant. “The focus of the SLC grant is to prepare all students to be college and career ready upon graduation

from high school,” said Mahi. The strategy includes not only restructuring traditional classrooms, but also redefi ning the tools through which classroom material is exchanged. Much of this reorganization is happening via technology and social networking sites that “fit well with recent advances that have transformed the ways people connect and form community,” said Moniz. “Teachers have become learners,” said Mahi, stressing the importance of understanding and utilizing the most current technology in order to give students a more global perspective. Research has shown SLCs and complementary personalization strategies to reduce disruptive behavior, create a more orderly learning environment and increase attendance and graduation rates, according to the program’s website.

“The advantages of being small stem from having more opportunities for personal contact from caring teachers. Students don’t get lost in the shuffle. Large public high schools can be intimidating, impersonal places if they don’t have ways to institutionalize smallness,” said Moniz. Used as an organizing tool for large schools, SLCs include innovations, such as freshman academies, multi-grade academies organized around career interests, groups of students, known as “houses,” that remain together throughout high school, and schools-within-a-school. SLC teachers in certain subjects serve as “core teachers,” responsible for the same group of students for several years. Students are able to specialize in “career pathways” designed to provide them with an early introduction to careers and occupations. Arts and Communication, Business, Health Services, Natural Resources, Industrial and Engineering Technology, and Public and Human Services are among those available in Hawai‘i public schools. Students are provided “a seamless transition from secondary to postsecondary education, as well as a satisfying career,” through the use of Career Pathways, according to the Career and Technical Education Center at UH. According to Mahi, Roosevelt High School, which received SLC grants in 2002 and 2008, has implemented the Career Pathways model and now boasts an 89 percent graduation rate, with 73 percent going on to pursue degrees at two- and four-year colleges. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average freshman graduation rate for Hawai‘i in 2008 was 76 percent. “All of this is because we are being supported by the Smaller Learning Communities grant,” said Mahi.

Smashing pumpkins in your mouth, not your ears Pumpkins are a member of the Cucurbita family, which includes squashes and cucumbers. Pumpkins are grown on every continent except Antarctica. JOEL KUTAKA KA LEO O HAWAI‘I

H AIYA SARWAR Staff Writer

Fall means pumpkins, and here are some scrumptious ways to get your pumpkin ďŹ x in Honolulu.

1. JA M BA J U I C E ĘźS P U M P K I N S M A S H

This creamy indulgence is ice-cold and will get you through the muggy fall air of Hawai‘i. If you like pumpkin pie and ice cream, this frozen yogurt-based drink is reminiscent of Thanksgiving. As University of Hawai‘i at MÄ noa student Joy Honey Chen said, “It ’s my favorite!â€? A nd the fact that it ’s only 390 calories will give you even more to be thankful for.

2 . S TA R B U C K S ʟ P U M P K I N C R E A M C H E E S E MUFFIN. The cream cheese is what gives this spicy muffin an extra edge, giving it a bit of cheesecake f lavor. From first bite to last, this muffin is moist with a lingering nuttiness worth drooling for. Though the calorie amount has not been exposed, it’s worth the muffin-top.

3. YO G U R T L A N D ʟS P U M P K I N P I E YO G U R T On its ow n, it ’s not as special as it could be. But mi x it w ith the New York cheesecake yog ur t and mounds of cheesecake bites, and it

t astes just like a blended St arbuck ’s P umpk in Cream Cheese Muf f in might . A nd aside f rom the cheesecake pieces, it ’s also incredibly low in calor ies. With the pumpkin pie yogurt weighing in at a mere 36 calories per ounce and the New York cheesecake yogurt containing only 37 calories per ounce, this treat will indulge your pumpkin cravings without distressing your waistline.

Get more bang for your buck: reaping maximum rewards ROBERT C HOY Staff Writer

Odds are that when you signed up for that check ing account or credit card, you also signed up to be par t of that bank ’s rewards program. Over the months, or even years, that you’ve been using your card, you’ve been rack ing up rewards points w ith many of your purchases, but are you ma x imi zing the amount of points you get f rom these t ransact ions? The first step is to learn how you earn reward points. If you’re using a credit card, you’re probably accumulating points with ever y purchase you make. However, if you’re using a debit card, many banks only give you points when you sign for purchases made with your card (e.g. using it at a restaurant to pay for the bill).

Fighting over free speech: Snyder v. Phelps MORGAN CARMODY Staff Writer

In 2006, Matthew Snyder, a U.S. Marine killed fi ghting in Iraq, was buried by his family in Maryland while Pastor Fred Phelps and seven protestors waved signs saying “Thank God for Dead Soldiers,” “God Hates Fags” and “Don’t Pray for the USA” roughly 1000 feet away. Mathew Snyder was not gay. Matthew’s father, Albert Snyder, sued and the case reached the Supreme Court on Wednesday, Oct. 6. As stated by the Wall Street Journal on Oct. 7, “Albert Snyder sued for emotional distress and a jury awarded him $2.9 million of compensatory damages and $8 million in punitive damages. That verdict was overturned by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court will now determine whether such speech can be regulated and whether the law permits tort liability for hurtful speech.” According to fi, “The Topeka, Kansasbased Westboro Baptist Church displays such inflammatory antigay statements when protesting the funerals of American soldiers killed in Iraq. The church asserts that God is punishing the country for its support of gay rights. The Rev. Fred Phelps, the church’s founder, and members of his family have garnered many headlines through the years for their vehement protests against homosexuality, including picketing the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a gay man beaten to death in Wyoming in 1998.” This case concerns both the right to the family’s privacy and Pastor Phelps’ right to free speech. None of us would want to bury a family member under these circumstances, but then again, our country was founded on the basis of free speech. Is this going too far? Should the Supreme Court’s ruling place limits on free speech?

Reverend Phelps’ church protested the election of a gay student to a prom court at a high school in Hollywood, CA. Above, Phelps’ daughter Shirly displays signs similar to those waved at Matthew Snyder’s funeral. Forty-one states already have laws in place concerning protesting at funerals, but Hawai‘i is not among them. The protestors stood at a distance of roughly 1000 feet, so they posed no real physical threat, but is this still acceptable? This case is made increasingly difficult by the intense emotional nature of it. I think that the actions of the Westboro Church were within their legal rights. However, just because you have

the legal right to do something does not mean that it is the moral thing to do. We are all human and no one wants to lose a family member, let alone a child who died for a noble cause. Out of sensitivity for the issue at hand, I think Pastor Phelps could have found a more appropriate time and place to protest, one that would have been less inflammatory. The ruling of the Supreme Court case Snyder v. Phelps, has yet to be determined.

ʻOhana Hoopfest Schedule

from page 8

The two teams will host the University of Hawai‘i ‘Ohana Hoopfest this Friday at the Stan Sheriff Center at 9:15 p.m. following the Rainbow Wahine volleyball team’s match against San Jose State. Admission is free. “ We a re excited to host t he ‘Oha na Hoopfest as we open up t he 2 010 -11 basketba l l sea son,” sa id R a i nbow Wa hi ne head coach Da na Ta ka ha ra Dias, who is i n her second yea r w it h t he prog ra m. “It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be entertainment,” Arnold said. Arnold and his team are looking forward to appearing in front of their fans for the fi rst time. “Hoopfest will allow a sneak preview of the team members as well as show a fun-loving side of our personalities,” Takahara-Dias said. Arnold had a similar response. “(The players) are excited,” Arnold said. “I kind of want the fans to see them and their personalities outside of basketball. Usually when they see

them, they see them in a pretty intense game situation. But this is a time where they can see them a little more relaxed and having some fun.” The men’s and women’s teams will be introduced to fans; the teams will also perform skits and there will be a celebrity game. Chancellor Hinshaw, Carole Kai, Sweetie Pacarro, Mike Cherry, Billy V, Big Steve Naeole and Tony Silva of Da Braddahs are a few of the celebrity guests, according to Takahara-Dias. At half-time, there will be a UH student half-court shooting contest with four inter-island tickets to be given away. Students can register at the sports marketing table at Gate A by 9:30 p.m. There will be an autograph session for fans to close the night. Both teams will open their season with exhibition games against the Chaminade Silverswords. The women will play the Silverswords on Nov. 4, while the men will play them on Nov. 6. Both games are at the Stan Sheriff Center and begin at 7 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, OCT. 13, 2010


The Rainbow Wahine is coming off of their longest break of the season, having not played a match since Oct. 1. Hewitt admits that it was a timely break for the team. “It’s a good thing,” Hewitt said. “Our bodies needed (the break) for sure.” Despite a rest f rom com pet it ion, Shoji st il l feels t hat t he ’ Bows push t hemselves i n pract ice i n prepa rat ion for up com i ng matches. “We’ve been able to rest some people, but we’re back in the practice gym and going hard in practice,” Shoji said. “We got a few days off, but now we’re back at work.” “In practice we push each other, so I know we’ll be great,” Hewitt said.

Sophomore middle hitter Brittany Hewitt, of the Rainbow Wahine volleyball team, is taking the Western Athletic Conference by storm. Hewitt leads the WAC in two statistics with a .386 hitting percentage and 1.77 blocks per set. In Hawai‘i’s last road trip, Hewitt played a near-perfect game against New Mexico State, hitting .917 with 11 kills on 12 attempts. She then hit .714 with five kills at Louisiana Tech two days later. “Dani (Mafua) was setting me up in all the right situations,” Hewitt said. “She was able to see when all their blockers were up,

or a lot of the time, blockers were off with Kanani (Danielson). That just cleared it up for me.” Head coach Dave Shoji is high on Hewitt’s development. “She (Hewitt) is becoming a well-rounded middle blocker,” Shoji said. “She’s always been a pretty good blocker, but now her offense is really rounding into form. She’s connecting with Dani and she’s hitting for a very high percentage.”

ABOUT THE OPPONENTS Hewitt and No. 4 Hawai‘i (141, 4- 0 WAC) will take the court this Friday and Sunday against San Jose State and Fresno State. Friday’s match is set for 7 p.m. while Sunday’s match is

at 5 p.m. Both games are at the Stan Sheriff Center. San Jose State (8-12, 3-4 WAC) is coming off a win over Louisiana Tech in straight sets. Sophomore

lani Marple (La Pietra ’06). Fresno State (7-10, 2-4 WAC) is coming off of a loss to New Mexico State. Sophomore middle blocker Marissa Brand

(Hewitt’s) always been a pretty good blocker but now her offense is really rounding into form. middle blocker Alex Akana (Kamehameha ’09) led the Spartans with 13 kills while hitting .455. Along with Akana, San Jose State fields three other athletes from Hawai‘i. Junior outside hitter Brianna Amian (Moanalua ’07), sophomore setter Caitlin Andrade (Kamehameha ’09) and senior defensive specialist Lei-

and senior outside hitter Lauren Berger led the Bulldog charge racking up 11 kills each. “ We’re just looking at it like any other opponent,” Hewitt said. “ We have to respect the other side of the net no matter who’s on the other side. ( We will) get prepared the same way we do any other match.”

With UCL A defeating Stanford last weekend, there is no undefeated team in NCA A Division I women’s volleyball. And for the first time this season, Hawai‘i is receiving firstplace votes in the AVCA poll. “Definitely, I think it is (a positive thing),” Hewitt said. “But we can’t let it go to our heads. We need to work harder and get better every practice and every match, but I definitely see us going all the way.” Stanford, along with Penn State and Texas – last season’s two national title participants – have also lost this season. “Stanford losing and Penn State losing – it just means that there’s a lot of great teams, not just one dominate team now,” Shoji said. “ Texas and Penn State were the dominate two teams. Now there doesn’t seem to be one team that has their shoulders above everybody, so I think there’s hope that we can win the national championship.”
