Diego Silang: An Exhibit Talk

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Yuchengco Museum

How well do you know Diego Silang, one of Philippines' most important historical figures? Unless you had a fascination for Philippine History or you sat attentively in your classes in grade school, then you might have missed significant information about his life. 

One of the challenges of teaching Philippine History for me is the fact that I have lost grasp of most of the things that I have learned. Well, okay. That's sort of an excuse for being the biggest daydreamer among the 30 students in my class then. However, the one thing that I love about being a homeschooler here in Manila is having the opportunity to relearn history through engaging ways like "exhibit talks". A number of museums host such events and for very minimal admission fees.
Based from experience, as a grade school student decades ago and as a homeschooling parent now, young people become more interested in history if they are not forced into it. If you tell them to sit and read a history book, chances are you will be met with a moony reaction.

Come December 1, 2012, the Yuchengco Museum will be hosting an exhibit talk entitled “Diego Silang” to be presented by Fr. Jose Arcilla, SJ, history professor, writer and scholar. He has written books, papers and several articles on history. Among his books are An Introduction to Philippine History, Rizal and the Emergence of the Philippine Nation, The Fine Print of Philippine History, and Understanding the Noli.

Imagine what a great learning experience this is going to be.
