Books and reading in the center of the college attention
Having rich culture and literary heritage, both Armenia and Armenians gave a great importance to education, books and literature. A book reading motivating notable step is the Armenian literature examination at Quantum. All college students as well as those who are admitted to the college have to get acquainted with the literary works on Armenian Literature.
At Quantum the academic year starts at the end of August and it becomes a real holiday for the students who have worked hard in summer, have come to take the exams being well prepared and start the year with high grades: good beginning is half of the work. The reading of the literary works and learning the assigned material make the learning process easier both for the student and the teacher.
It’s already several years that the requirements of the exams have been added with one more component -writing reference papers, the requirements of which for each grade is a different one: continue the plot of the read work, analyze the work, introduce the life time period of the writer, introduce his works etc.
These tasks improve the principles of both the speech development and the analytical thinking, which form the bases of Armenian language and literature.
The written tasks are checked in a period of one month, the best works are nominated for getting an award. Students also pay great importance to the formatting and designing of the work as the IT knowledge has very profound bases in this college.
Do students love reading? This question is answered by the students themselves with their work done and their level of getting ready.
“Literature needs a national defense”, - says Tumanyan. In the defense of the literature “Quantum” is trying to have its modest investment responding positively to all the events that have been organized in 2012 for the purpose of making Yerevan a world center of books.
