D1: What Holidays Does My Newcomer Celebrate?

Because U.S. holidays commemorate important people and events in U.S. history and Western culture, newcomers may be unfamiliar with them and vice versa. So why not have an information exchange about each other's holidays?

Before finishing this unit, click on the link (in red) to complete the critical incidents activity on how to help your newcomer become comfortable with American holidays. After that, you can take the post assessment on civic engagement. After taking the post assessment, you will have completed Unit 4, and you should begin Unit 5 on the legal rights of immigrants.
