OZAMIZ CITY: The La Salle University (LSU) is conducting “Araw ng Pagbasa” for its elementary and high school students, Nov. 27.
Teachers are told to conduct storytelling in Cebuano to emphasize the importance of reading and stories written in the local dialect.
Books to be used in the storytelling must be borrowed from the library.
Parents of students can also do the storytelling to the students, Monaliza Mugot, LSU Libraries and Media Center director said.
The “Araw ng Pagbasa is part of the activities of the National Information Month (NIM) celebrated by the school this November.
