The National Archives Concludes A Series Of Reading Workshops

At The  Ras Al Khaimah Book Fair

The National Archives in collaboration with Ras Al Khaimah Educational Zone concluded a series of reading workshops for students at the 9th Ras Al Khaimah Book Fair, as part of encouraging reading, promoting education  and fostering the concept of reading among students.

The workshops included reading  summaries of the scientific content of three of the National Archives’ most important publications: Zayed From Challenges to the Union, Khalifa, A Journey to the Future, and Qasr Al Hosn, with aim to develop the culture of reading among students, thus contributing to the preparation of well-informed generations at all levels, who are able to take part in development and advancement.

Experts from the educational programs section at the National Archives, who oversaw the workshops, enriched them with excerpts from Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s biography and the biography of H.H Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE. The reading of these biographies have a great impact on the citizens introducing a good example and enhancing outstanding traits and deeds. The readings also included excerpts from Qasr Al Hosn, as it offers an important documented light on the bright and honorable history of Abu Dhabi. This fort is still one of the most important historical monuments in the UAE and it was the seat of reign at the onset of development and renaissance.

The workshops adopted a modern and calculated approach that offers the students the maximum knowledge; as they were not limited to reading only, but included discussion, and reading aloud. They included revisions of the studied material and questions on the themes to enhance participants’ information. The National archives distributed promotional and incentive awards to outstanding and interested students.
