How did the US Founding Fathers ensure a fair and balanced central government? What is the role of citizens in a representative democracy? When did Armenians begin immigrating to the US and who was the first Armenian, known to have moved to America? Why do we punish criminals? These and other questions regarding US society, culture, values, and institutions were answered during an event hosted by the students of the 11th and 12th grades of Mkhitar Sebastatsi Educational Complex high school on November 18, 2022, to wrap up “The USA in a nutshell” project presentation. The event brought together leading practitioners in the education sector – guests from EducationUSA, PH International and Armenian English Language Teachers’ Association (AELTA), interested teachers and students, as well as members of EducationUSA Competitive College Club and European Youth Parliament Armenia to celebrate the traditional Sebastatsi Days and International Education Week with the project team.
