A SEMINAR-WORKSHOP designed to help Filipino teachers better understand the relevance of the historical background of Rizal’s “Noli Me Tangere” and “El Filibusterismo” will be conducted from April 27 to 29 at Telengtan Hall, University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), Pearl Drive, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
In “Teaching Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo for Wisdom and Citizenship,” the speakers will seek to enhance high school teachers’ knowledge and update them on current research on the Spanish colonial period in order to give them the proper context and empower them to confidently teach the two novels in their classes.
The speakers are Clement C. Camposano, Marya Svetlana T. Camacho, Paul A. Dumol, Arnel E. Joven of the UA&P History Department and Jorge Mojarro of Instituto Cervantes de Manila.
There will be sessions on the nation as an artifact of history; the Philippines during the Spanish colonial period; Gomburza; the Propaganda Movement, and Rizal’s novels compared to 19th-century Spanish and Latin American novels.
The fee is P3,000 covering kits, meals and certificates for the three-day activity.
