A New Look at Old Buildings.
Providence Preservation Society, RI.
This handbook is divided into five parts and is designed to accompany the filmstrip, "A New Look at Old Buildings," a part of the Providence Preservation Society's ongoing commitment to educating students about Providence's rich architectural heritage. (The other materials used in the program are the audio component for the film and a workbook entitled "A Providence History Mystery.") Part 1 presents an introduction to the program, which is targeted at fourth graders. Part 2 is a vocabulary list of architectural terms. Part 3, "A New Look at Old Buildings: Credits," lists the people responsible for the production of the filmstrip. Part 4 details each of the 96 frames in the filmstrip giving exact locations of the buildings featured, names of specific homes, and dates of construction. Part 5, the filmstrip's complete script, concludes the document. (PPB)
