My Mistake

I have finished my first week of classes and made a mistake. 
The lesson plan for both the writing course and the freshmen oral English course revolved around Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).  I mistakenly forgot that not everyone in China celebrates Spring Festival.  There are ethnic minorities like the Hui people who practice Islam who don't celebrate this festival along with the majority of Han people.  My lesson plan was not culturally sensitive to the minority students in my class.
