I rounded out my cultural background with a slideshow of holiday traditions in Costa Rica. I previously had a unit with birthday and wedding traditions. I made sure to include the fact that there are Jewish people in Costa Rica as well. I believe it is important to focus on different groups in countries or students believe that everyone in Costa Rica is Catholic. After using this powerpoint, I used some of Courtney’s great Navidad bonanza activities. I like that my students after this unit had more of a grasp of Costa Rican traditions in particular. What are your students currently loving? Share your thoughts with me!
