Celebrating Labor Day in Chile

At a high school in Chile, English Language Fellow Susan Strand led a presentation on the origin of Labor Day and customs for celebrating the annual holiday.

The presentation, which coincided with Labor Day in the United States, encouraged students to discuss contributions workers make in developing their country and to compare their knowledge of Chile’s Labor Day celebrations and origins with those of the United States. This content-based lesson gave Access students the opportunity to practice using English in a meaningful way.
