The historical accounts that differ so greatly from my high school experience.
The many facts I learned about Hawaiian history and culture
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.
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.
The social issues that were central to the material, like the issue of Native Hawaiian sovereignty.
Learning from the lectures and readings.
knowing that the US annexation of HAwaii was illegal and we should not be a part of the US
The political view and laws that I had no idea existed before this class.
My professor being one of the stronger forces of the Hawaiian movement.

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!
Small quizzes to reinforce understanding
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.
Try not to show that you don't really know some things on a subject especially with a class full of non-Hawaiians.
There were too many slides to get through in one class period. Maybe condense the number of slides for the topics.
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.
it was good
Davianna McGregor is a great teacher and she goes into depth with everything. My one suggestion is just to go slower on the presentations.

N/A
Nothing at all.
Shorten the readings. Organize them better on laulima.

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

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.
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.

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.
