The topic of this research is Developing Reading skills in Teenagers through Material Based on American Holidays. This work was designed in order to create activities based on American Holidays to reinforce the reading skill in high school students. Three important methods are taken into account to develop this process. The first one is the Bibliographic method in order to create the Literature Review, which contained information about this research work from books, articles, and websites. The second and third ones are the qualitative and quantitative methods, which were useful to describe and analyze information from surveys applied to ten university teachers, and an interview applied to an expert of the topic, and questionnaires given at the beginning and at the end of the observation to high school students whose questions were related to their knowledge about American Holidays. At the end of the research, a booklet was designed including readings about seven American Holidays, as well as activities related to them for students to practice their reading skills. The most important conclusion is that making students read American Holidays was useful, not only to improve their reading skills, but also to be aware of the American culture.
