The COR Center has also prepared a variety of lesson plans within the newest version of Welcome to the United States: A Guidebook for Refugees. These lesson plans were designed with overseas orientation in mind, but can also be useful to review and refresh participant understanding after arrival in the United States. These lesson plans will be posted once the new edition of the Welcome guide is posted as well.

In addition, the COR Center has developed a standardized Extended and Enhanced Orientation Curriculum addressing a number of topics and issues suited for refugees who have been in the United States for more than 30 days but less than five years.
