My Origins: Discovering and Recording Family History.
Soghikian, Juanita Will
The booklet is designed to help upper level elementary school students research and write their family history. Part of a series of seven instructional materials dealing with the culture and history of American Armenians, the document provides readings and assignment sheets for students and lesson guides for teachers and parents. In the first lesson students discuss their family ancestral origins and locate places of origin on a world map. The teacher introduces color-coded family generation cards in preparation for students creating their own family tree. In Lesson II students learn to record oral history through interviews and writing family stories. They also trace family migrations on a world map. In Lesson III students share information by reading aloud their family stories. The teacher's guide contains a list of materials required, a summary of the lesson, and an outline of class activities including the time allotted for each. The booklet may be used independently of other materials in the series. (KC)
