Thanksgiving Podcast

**I am currently working on a new quiz for Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, checkout this podcast that the Milpitas Adult School staff recorded in Nov. 2007. We use both the old USCIS 96 questions and the current USCIS 100 questions

Thanksgiving! (posted Nov 2007)

Today we will review the 96Qs (50, 53, 68, 69, 70) and the new 100Q (10, 58, 59, 87, 100) related to Thanksgiving.  Note the difference between the old and new sets of USCIS questions.
