Tagalog Heritage Classes at ODU

The classes provide a proactive learning experience on the histories and cultures of the Philippines. Students will be able to study at three different levels; elementary, middle school, and high school. We have also added theatre arts for the elementary level. A curriculum is set for all students to explore the various sights, sounds, tastes, and texts of the Philippines and its people. In higher levels, students will also study Filipino American immigrations and the relations between the United States and the Philippines.
