FHL launches new storybooks in Pagadian, Zamboanga del Sur

The Filipinas Heritage Library, together with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), launched Tominaman sa Rogong Becomes a Painter and Wigan Becomes a Sculptor in Pagadian, Zamboanga del Sur last May 3.

The activity was held in conjunction with the Cultural Education Program of the NCCA, which provides supplemental training in the teaching of history, art, and culture to elementary and high school teachers in Mindanao. Fifty one teachers benefited from the lecture on literature-based instruction, a storytelling activity, a copy of the storybook Tominaman, and a demo class conducted by Woodrose reading teacher, Ms. Lerma de la Peña. These two storybooks, which are mythologies on the ethnic origin of art, are recommended to be used by teachers as springboard for teaching reading Filipino literature, ethnic culture, research, and/or art.

These two stories were retold by Felice Prudente Sta. Maria and developed in partnership with the NCCA and Adarna House, Inc.
