Coming all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia to teach the A2Z Creative Teaching Methods seminar were CSM book author Dr. Lizette Knight and her husband, Dr. Michael Knight. Both taught sessions in the whole-day seminar with A2Z Creative Teaching Methods co-author Dr. Sonia Silbor last July 8, 2017 at CSM building in Parañaque. A total of 240 participants representing 12 schools and 56 churches from different cities in Metro Manila, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, and Ilocos Norte. The seminar was made more special with the presence of Art Educator and DepEd textbook reviewer Alice Pañares from the National Commission for Culture and Arts (NCCA).
Dr. Lizette Knight taught Effective Teaching through Creative Methods and Teacher Care: Proper Holistic Wellness while co-author Dr. Sonia Silbor taught lesson planning. Dr. Lizette also co-led the Creative Biblical Integration session with her husband, Dr. Michael Scott Knight.
Participants chose which group to attend in the breakout sessions for actual group work and presentation of lesson plans during the workshop part of the seminar. Using the Hook Book Look Took method, they presented lesson plans for children, high school youth, and adults. Dr. Lizette concluded with a challenge to be creative holistic teachers and had rings distributed to each participant as a symbol of their commitment. Each participant also received an A2Z Creative Teaching Methods book and a certificate of attendance.
Other CSM titles by Dr. Lizette Knight are Teacher Care: Proper Holistic Wellness, Maximum Learning & Teaching, Ministry Planning Made Easy, Bible Teaching Made Easy, and Seminary Education by Extension. All of these are available at the CSM BookCorner within the CSM building in Parañaque City.
