The lecture  ended  with  an  open  forum,  during  which  the  participants  asked  the   following  questions:         1. What  is  the  tense  of  verbs  used  in  writing  news?   2. We  are  in  an  extension  school  –  a  beginner.  How  can  I  motivate  the  students   and  teachers  to  appreciate  writing?     3. Mainstream  media  was  said  to  control  the  mindset  of  the  nation.  Usually,  the   media  would  hide  some  facts,  effectively  giving  the  viewers  the  wrong   information.  Is  this  against  the  proper  conduct  of  journalism?   4. Why  do  we  produce  newspapers?   5. Why  should  we  plant  trees?   6. What  is  the  best  thing  to  do  during  a  writer’s  block?   7. May  patutunguhan  ba  ang  pag  susulat?   8.

What  do  you  get  from  writing?   16. What  are  the  courses  related  to  writing?   17. What  are  the  benefits  of  being  a  writer?   18. What  is  the  soul  of  the  newspaper  and  why?   19. As  a  writer,  how  will  you  encourage  the  younger  generation  to  read  your   articles  especially  now  that  the  generation  is  evolving?     After  lunch,  the  parallel  sessions  started.  In  the  first  hour,  Dr.  Bengwayan,  Engr.   Masillem,  Mr.  Bagacina  and  Mr.  Nuval  has  small  group  lectures  on  Investigative   Reporting,  Photojournalism,  Essay  Writing/Editorial  Writing  and  Lay-­‐outing   respectively.       On  the  second  hour,  while  Engr.  Masillem  continued  his  lecture  on  Photojournalism,   Dr.  Bengwayan,  Mr.  Bagacina  and  Mr.  Nuval  started  separate  sessions  on  Feature   Writing,  Poetry,  and  News/Sports  Writing.       Workshops  started  as  soon  as  all  the  parallel  sessions  were  over.  Photojournalism   participants  went  out  to  take  shots,  as  instructed  by  their  resource  speaker,  while   the  others  were  given  topics  to  write  about.       While  the  workshops  were  ongoing,  the  organizers  and  speakers  gathered  the   advisers  for  meeting.  The  advisers  shared  their  concerns  in  their  respective  schools.   It  was  agreed  upon  that  both  the  campus  journalists  and  writers  need  further   training.      

One specific  concern  was  the  lay-­‐outing  of  the  school  paper  and  the  coming  up  with   an  e-­‐publication.  In  most  school  publications,  the  adviser  does  the  lay-­‐outing,  and   most  of  them  uses  Miscrosoft  Publisher;  very  few  uses  Adobe  Pagemaker.       The  president  of  the  organization  of  School  Paper  Advisers  suggested  that  a  training   for  both  the  campus  writers  and  advisers  be  scheduled  sometime  in  December  or   next  year.       The  meeting  ended  and  the  outputs  were  collected  at  5:30  PM.       On  the  second  day,  the  resource  speakers  had  another  set  of  parallel  sessions  for  the   critiquing  of  the  outputs.  Each  speaker  pointed  out  strengths,  weaknesses,  and  areas   for  improvement.  Outputs  were  given  back  to  the  students  for  their  reference.       TREE  PLANTING  COMPONENT       The  tree  planting  was  conducted  in  the  morning  of  the  second  day.  There  were   about  1000  pine  tree  seedlings.  Dr.  Bengwayan  first  gave  a  brief  introduction  on  the   advantages  of  planting  pine  trees,  and  then  demonstrated  how  the  seedlings  should   be  planted.       In  addition  to  the  journalism-­‐training  participants,  ATAD  members  from  Bontoc   arrived  to  help.  They  were  divided  into  small  groups,  given  a  number  of  seedlings   and  assigned  to  plant  in  specific  areas  around  the  school,  the  dorm  and  the  church.       CLOSING  PROGRAM       The  journalism  trainees,  tree  planters,  and  organizers  were  treated  to  a  spectacular   performance  by  the  St.  Mary’s  School  of  Sagada  Choir  at  the  start  of  the  closing   program.  The  participants  shared  their  impressions  on  the  training  and  gave  a   synthesis  of  the  two-­‐day  activity.  Dr.  Bengwayan  and  Engr.  Masillem  awarded  the   certificates  to  participants  and  resource  speakers.  Dr.  Bengwayan  also  gave  his   message,  thanking  all  those  who  made  the  training  and  tree  planting  activity   possible,  including  ATAD,  the  resource  speakers,  St.  Mary’s  School  of  Sagada  for   hosting  the  activity,  the  schools  and  parents  of  the  students  for  allowing  the   students  to  join  and  the  students  for  actively  participating.       Finally,  a  student  from  St.  Mary’s  School  of  Sagada  gave  the  closing  program,  three   students  from  Sagada  Central  School  sang  a  closing  song  and  Ms.  Lite  gave  the   closing  prayer.       Both  the  opening  and  closing  program  were  facilitated  by  Pharysa  Dean  Pekas  and   Jennifer  Bidang,  SMSS  students.
