James Harpstrite Retires

James Harpstrite joined CRDG in 1976 as a social studies teacher and curriculum developer where he directed curriculum development and professional development efforts including the Hawai‘i Multicultural Awareness Project, the Consumer Education Project, and the Energy Conservation Project. He contributed to the Civic Education for the Information Age (CEIA) joint curriculum development project under the direction of Frank Pottenger, which is now incorporated into the school curriculum in the Krasnoyarsk, Barnaul, and greater Moscow regions in Russia.
In 1980, Harpstrite won the National Youth Involvement Award from the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges for his work on the Hawai‘i Multicultural Awareness Project. His leadership in the Energy Conservation Project was on the cutting edge in the 1980s when he created do-it-yourself solar water heating kits for use in Hawai‘i and throughout the Pacific.

In Memoriam

Leon H. Burton, professor emeritus of the University of Hawai‘i at Ma–noa’s College of Education, passed away on December 23, 2011, at the age of 81. Burton helped start the Hawai‘i Curriculum Center, which became the Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG) in 1969 and served CRDG for over 27 years, creating many widely recognized curricula in music and early childhood education. His Comprehensive Musicianship Program for grades K–6 continues to be used in Hawai‘i’s schools today. In 1996, Burton, along with Diane Witt, completed Integrated Developmental Experiences for Active Learning (iDEAL), a totally integrated kindergarten program. He and Witt also collaborated to produce Ukulele: A Comprehensive Approach (1989) and Class Guitar: A Comprehensive Approach (1981). Always focused on the learning of young children, Burton authored MusicPlay, ArtsPlay, Pathways, and (with Marlene Hapai) BugPlay. Burton was active within both the academic and music communities, serving in many education policy organizations and travelling extensively in his role as a music educator. He also played with the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra for more than six decades. His impact on music and arts education continues locally and worldwide.
