Sights and Sounds of Armenia.
This student booklet, one in a series of seven instructional materials dealing with the history and culture of Armenian Americans, provides elementary school children with a description of Armenia today. Following a brief discussion of Armenia's recent history, students examine numerous captioned photographs that describe places, people, and events in Armenia. The photographs consist mainly of people engaged in work, playing music, singing, and at school and church. The city life of Yerevan, the capital of Soviet Armenia, is depicted by its streets, market, factories, monuments, cultural center, and churches. The rural life is depicted in the village of Voskevaz where people are seen working in the fields and herding sheep. Photographs of the Byurakan Observatory, ancient manuscripts, and poet Hovhanes Shiraz are also included. A tape of sounds related to the photographs may be obtained through the Armenian Relief Society, 212 Stuart Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116. The book may be used independently of the other materials in the series. (KC)
