Ia Faalautele Lau Gagana Samoan Pedagogy Institute

Immediately following our Summer Institute symposium on Heritage Learners and National Language Needs, this 5-day workshop brought 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 final evaluation of this institute is available online at http://www.nflrc.hawaii.edu/networks/NW28.pdf.
