Staff development sessions are embedded in the work day. The community is invited to its complex Community Forum, where input is encouraged on developing school and community pride.

James Campbell High School Writing Across the Curriculum

In September 1986 a writing committee consisting of eight teacher representatives from various departments was organized at James Campbell High School. Its task was to address the problem of students' poor writing and thinking skills. The committee members collected data from students and teachers, researched the field of writing instruction and staff development, and then outlined a three-year writing improvement effort called the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Project.

The basic premises of the project were: 1) writing is not only a means of expression and communication, but also a tool for learning, 2) good writing must be reinforced in all content areas, and 3) teachers' teaching skills must be upgraded before students' writing skills can be improved.

To meet these goals, participating teachers attended fifteen hours of workshops conducted by the Hawaii Writing Project, applied their newly-acquired skills in at least one of the courses they were teaching, and produced two lesson plans incorporating writing in the teaching of their content areas. Besides the direct training of teachers, major products of WAC include a school-wide writing policy, a resource book of lesson plans, and a video training package.

Since its inception in 1987, a total of fifty-three teachers from thirteen departments have volunteered to participate in the project. The objectives were not only met but exceeded during each year. Our data has shown the project to be highly successful for the teachers as well as the students; as teachers applied the techniques learned at the workshops, their own attitudes toward writing improved. Over the three-year period the writing skills of our students were improved by significantly upgrading the skills, attitudes, and behaviors of our teachers. The WAC Project had such a significant positive impact at Campbell that it has become an on-going integral approach to improving and enhancing our curriculum.


James Campbell High School Leeward Partnership For School- to- Work

Hawaii's young people need a sense of direction when it comes to careers, and that direction can come from businesses.
Businesses have a lot to teach today's students. For starters, they can teach them why Algebra and English really are important, why teamwork is essential in the workplace and why it is inappropriate to wear surf shorts to a job interview.
School-To-Work (STW) is committed to helping businesses hook up with schools to help improve the way we prepare young people for careers. Emphasis is placed on bringing the workplace into the classroom and transforming workplaces into places of learning.
