Most everyone enjoys holidays, but few clearly understand the meanings, traditions, and values behind these special days. Holidays tell us much about the past and also about the values that those in the present find worth preserving for the future. Learn how to use holidays to teach a variety of subject areas across the K-12 curriculum. Holidays can be an enriching and interesting way to communicate content standards and values. This course examines over 30 holidays observed in America, explains their history, and stimulates thoughtful analysis about the values these days of celebration and remembrance promote.
