This is going to be a great course! A few comments on SLOʻs:
1. Show knowledge of phrases and idioms used by native speakers in common conversational settings.
---Show knowledge is vague. Maybe Utilize phrases and idioms used by native speakers in conversational settings in the classroom environment?
2. Demonstrate an increased fluidity and speech of spoken language and improved acquisition of listening skills.
---Type o? fluidity of speech? Maybe: Demonstrate increased fluidity (e.g. fewer hesitations, increased use of target language only) in speech and improved acquisition of listening skills, as demonstrated by appropriate verbal and non-verbal responses.

Just suggestions. I think it is good to define how you demonstrate a given skill, especially as fluidity and listening skills may be hard to define/quantify and may not be intuitive to students.

I like the above SLO suggestions by Ardis, and I think what I'm suggesting below might make them even clearer:

1. Use Hawaiian phrases and idioms in conversational settings in the classroom environment.

2. Speak fluidly and respond appropriately, both verbally and non-verbally.

I like the rephrasing! I have small suggestion - drop "in the classroom environment". It seems unnecessary to specify this and I don't think that is the outcome that is desired -- One would hope that students carry the skills they learn with us outside of the classroom.

#9. Course Pre-Requisite: HAW 102 ( or concurrent) or consent
Why is our prerequisite lower than KAU & MAU prerequisite - HAW 202
A consideration: Should this be changed to be similar to WOAâs HAW 121, Intro to Hawn Conversation? This course does not have a prerequisite. We still could have HAW 221 and have the HAW 202 prerequisite like the other campuses.

#28 If approved, I couldnât tell if the course was to be added to all of the ASC Hawaiian Studies as elective credits.
Certificate Area Action
ASC Hawaiian Studies: All 5 themes Elective Add
