To whom it may concern,
Hi! My name is Theodore Urbano, the Assistant Director for Kaleidoscope Month. I will also
be the director for the Language Workshop this year. I strive to continue making the Language
Workshop more educational, more exciting, and most importantly, more interactive. In the
following document, you will come across what we are asking of you to put on October 27,
2009. We are asking that you follow the structure of last year's Language Workshop and
1) The first portion of the Language Workshop is the cultural portion. The audience will be
divided into groups equal to the number of participating sub-organizations. We hope to
have a variety of languages so that the student body can get the most of this workshop.
Creativity is key to making your station a success. You can teach them basic greetings,
make posters and diagrams, create filers and brochures, etc. You should have just as
much fun with the event as the audience.
2) The second portion of the Language Workshop will be the interactive portion. Again,
creativity will be essential in entertaining the audience. You can interact in any way you
like. The main goal of this portion is to educate the audiences why it is important to
know our native languages. This goal must be underlying in your performance. It can be
subtle or heavily evident. PowerPoints, posters, tri-fold backboards, role play, multi-
media, etc. can be used for this portion.
In order to track the progress of each sub-organization, acceptance of participation in the
workshop should be received no later than September 15, 2009. Preliminary outlines and station
details will be due on October 20, 2009. We will all meet in person to go over event details,
finalized scripts will be due, and program order in the second portion of the event. This meeting
is set for and October 24, 2009 at the AASU Office.
You are representing not only the Asian American Student Union, but your respective sub-
organization as well. So, please plan accordingly.
To make things more interesting, we will judge the interactive portion of the Language
Workshop and reward the organization with the highest score with an award. In a way, it will be
a light-hearted competition between the sub-organizations to see who is more creative in coming
up with their interactive portions. Below you will find the criteria judges, who will remain
unannounced, will be using to judge each sub-organization.
If there are any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail me. I am looking forward to a
great event and the creativity of all participants. Have a great day!
