Discovering History Through Artifacts. Case Study: Kingdom of Tigram II "The Great."
This student booklet, one in a series of seven instructional materials dealing with the history and culture of Armenian Americans, guides junior high school students through the process of discovering information about the past. The materials may be presented in four sessions. Session I introduces students to the concept of historiography through a discussion of ancient Armenia. As an activity, students list information that future historians could learn by studying the U.S. penny. In Session II students examine photographs of Roman medallions which commemorate victories over the Armenians and answer questions pertaining to an illustration of an Armenian soldier of 163 A.D. In Session III students make deductions about the kingdom of Tigran II the Great (85 B.C.) by devising questions and answers about a photograph of an ancient coin. In the final session students read a brief history of Tigran II, examine a map of his kingdom superimposed on a map of Soviet Armenia, and write an essay describing the illustration on the booklet cover. The booklet may be used independently of the other materials in the series. (KC)
