"A Virtual Journey" to the USA
A new project has appeared as a result of local teachers'
repeated requests for the preparation and conducting multimedia classes
on history, culture and traditions of the USA using the Window on America
We started our work with a multimedia lesson devoted
to the Presidents' Day, a US public holiday celebrating the birthdays
of Presidents proclaimed by President Nixon in honor of all US Presidents.
Due to our collection we were able to give interesting information to
our customers (users). They had an opportunity to listen to the recorded
voices of the XXth century presidents - starting with Theodore Roosevelt
to Bill Clinton, to get acquainted with interesting facts from their
lives and the lives of the first ladies, to learn more about the symbols
of the presidential authority (seal and emblem).
