HPA hosts PBS Hawaii’s Hiki No Teacher Workshop


Hawaii Preparatory Academy recently hosted PBS Hawaii’s Big Island Hiki No Teacher Workshop for Season 5.

Hiki No is the nation’s first statewide student news network and 85 schools throughout Hawaii are participating in the 2013-2014 school year.

Twenty-one teachers from schools around the Big Island attended the two-day workshop, which featured sessions on “The Anatomy of a News Story” with reporter Jim Mendoza of Hawaii News Now; “Hiki No Standards” with Lawrence Pacheco of PBS Hawaii; “Journalistic Practices” with Susan Yim, Hiki No’s managing editor; “Finding the Human Story” with Ryan Kawamoto, an independent producer and producer/mentor; and “How to Shoot a Sequence,” with Robert Pennybacker, PBS Hawaii’s executive producer for learning initiatives.

Teams of teachers shot and edited single interview-based stories, then screened and critiqued their work before returning to their schools to begin planning stories for Season 5, which begins airing at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3, on PBS Hawaii.
