Filipino Education Advisory Council
September 13, 2016
Tinalak, Filipino Advisory Council of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa – College of Education, would like to invite everyone to its 2016 Filipino Book and Curriculum Fair on Tuesday, October 11 from 2:00pm to 4:30pm at the UH Mānoa Laboratory School – Multipurpose Building.
October is Filipino American History Month and Tinalak would like to honor this special time of year by showcasing the richness of curriculum, books, and networking on Filipinos that are available for educators, families, and the community. Books and curriculum in English and Philippine languages will be available for review or purchase.
The event will include book readings, guest speakers, food, and opportunities to meet many of the authors themselves. With Filipinos comprising 25% of Hawaii’s population and 21% of all K-12 public school students in the state, we hope this event will be an opportunity for people to find enriching materials that they can incorporate into educational settings, homes, or other areas to engage Filipino students that are often underrepresented in books and curriculum.
