When you look at the Wake Tech ESL Curriculum you’ll see that American holidays and civics are included. Where is the best place to find this information for our ESL students? You could dig through books and periodicals, and do many web searches. But probably one of the best places to start looking is www.elcivics.com. They have a wealth of information which can be adapted to all levels of students.
On the site you’ll find powerpoint lessons, stories, worksheets, crossword puzzles, word searches, writing activities, plus many other things. The topics range from American history and government to life skills for ESL students. There are also lessons about American holidays. Additionally, there are links to other sites for even more activities. Add it to your “favorites” list and you’ll find yourself going back to it time and time again.
