13. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Learning from the lectures and readings.
My professor being one of the stronger forces of the Hawaiian movement.
The historical accounts that differ so greatly from my high school experience.
Learning more about the Hawaiian sovereignty in this time period especially with the government and the teachers different view on the Hawaiian monarchy in the olden days.
knowing that the US annexation of HAwaii was illegal and we should not be a part of the US
The many facts I learned about Hawaiian history and culture
The political view and laws that I had no idea existed before this class.
how it changed/formed my perspective on many pressing issues in Hawaii. Prior to this class, I had very little to no knowledge of the material that we cover. Now I feel that I can hold an educated conversation about cultural knowledge and controversies in Hawaii.
The social issues that were central to the material, like the issue of Native Hawaiian sovereignty.

17. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
If we could have the course taught to us in ways other than lecture and powerpoint, in ways which are engaging and forces us to think critically, if Professor McGregor was able to bring in other senses for us to learn with other than visual. This would be the perfect environment for us to learn this AMAZINGLY IMPORTANT information of Hawaii most do not know!
Try not to show that you don't really know some things on a subject especially with a class full of non-Hawaiians.
it was good
During the beginning of the semester, you were all over the place jumping around different areas of your lecture. During the later part of the semester, you seemed a lot more organized.
Small quizzes to reinforce understanding
Davianna McGregor is a great teacher and she goes into depth with everything. My one suggestion is just to go slower on the presentations.
Loved the course. If anything, I would say that it would be beneficial to make the class more discussion-based because we all have our own background and perspectives that we can share and grow from.
There were too many slides to get through in one class period. Maybe condense the number of slides for the topics.

23. What changes would you make in the readings?

they were fine

N/A
The readings were very interesting I wouldnt change anything.
Shorten the readings. Organize them better on laulima.
24. Please list: suggestions for improving the TA's teaching style and methods.
TAs were very ineffective. They were lazy and unorganized.
They needed to engage us as well, to correct where we needed correcting.
The TA's were amazing, they helped us a lot and even helped us on areas for the exam that we didn't quite get.
it was good
Exhibit a stronger sense of authority over having students to participate equally and not just have one student talk the entire class lab section.
Review what was taught in class
The TA's did a really good job and providing perspective, their teaching style and methods are just fine.
Actually try to engage students. Encourage critical thinking and discussion.
Reinforce the ideas and concepts learned in class instead of just giving out the answers.
25. Other comments:
Great lectures!
I will miss this class.
Professor McGregor is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed her class overall.

Knowing what happened to Hawaii and how it affects the people, me. I learned the general facts but there is so much that just isn't talked about.
Get provided the opportunity to attend Kahoâ??olawe with this class, and spend 3 days doing stewardship on the island.
Aunty Davi's passion in the matter of Hawaiian issues. I feel that she is a very influencial native Hawaiian who has played role in the Hawaiian community, not just be educating others but also being an active Hawaiian citizen.
I'll probably remember this course most by the lecture that Keanu Sai gave us. His lecture really did hit the heart, much like Prof. Davianna, but his lecture was powerful and opened up my eyes to many things.

Putting the power points online would be helpful.
Not so fast on the power points, and more information but in short form on the power points
go a little slower when giving the lectures like flipping through the slides.
None.

Great course, I absolutely loved it. It was just a shame that, it being an OC course, not many people spoke up, leaving class discussion to always be between the same 3-4 students.

It was a great course that encouraged independent research, thinking, and presentation of concepts.
