2010 Summer Workshops for Adults

When the weather starts warming up for the summer, you know that the school year is coming to a close.  And because we know how much everyone misses school *wink* during the height of boredom *wink wink* called summer vacation, we are happy to open the registrations for this year’s Klasrum Adarna workshops for adults!

First up is our legendary Storytelling Workshop, facilitated by our just-as-legendary storyteller Jay Menes.  That will be happening the whole day of April 24, a Saturday.  The workshop, of course, will be about storytelling — how to prepare for a session, the tools of a storyteller, and the process of the storytelling proper.

Then, on May 22 (a Saturday also), UPIS teachers Celeste Laurel and Pamela  Razon will be doing the lecture-workshop on Teaching Beginning Reading.  This class will focus on the Four-Pronged Approach, a literature-based method of teaching children how to read.

Both workshops are open to anyone interested, and will be held in Seminar Rooms 1 & 2 of the Institute of Social Order (ISO) Complex inside the Ateneo de Manila Campus in Quezon City.  The registration table will open at 8:00 AM during the days of the workshop, and both workshops will start at exactly 8:30 AM.

The fee for the storytelling workshop is Php 1,300.00, while the TBR workshop fee is Php 1,750.00.  Fees already include food, workshop materials, and certificates.  A 25% discount is available for those who would be registering 3 or more participants, and to those who would fulfill the payment 15 days before the workshop.

The electronic registration forms are available for download here.  Please download the form/s and fill them out electronically.  Two buttons are present within the forms: click “Print Form” if you will be sending the form to us via fax (372-3548 local 115), or click “Submit by E-mail” and just follow the step-by-step directions that will pop up.

We’re accepting only a maximum of 50 participants per workshop, so please do verify that there are still slots available before making any payments.  For inquries and slot reservation, please get in touch with Ergoe through 372-3548 local 122 or ergoe [at] adarna.com.ph.
