A Place In The Middle is the true story of a young girl in Hawaii who dreams of leading the boys-only hula group at her school,
and a teacher who empowers her through traditional culture. This kid-friendly educational film is a great way to get students thinking and talking about the values of diversity and inclusion, the power of knowing your heritage, and how to prevent bullying by creating a school climate of aloha—from their own point of view!
The film and an accompanying Classroom Discussion Guide developed by Kumu Hina Wong-Kalu are available for free from http://aplaceinthemiddle.org.
