Students are sure to become engrossed in the magic of Son Cubano and Old Havana through the music and charisma of the members of Buena Vista Social Club!
In this engaging packet, students will read and discuss background information about the film. They will then meet the cast, learning about each character by doing their own internet research in cooperative groups. Then, they will fill out a chart to share with their classmates, followed by a questionnaire based on their research (written in Spanish).
Students will watch the movie and complete the movie guide (in English) as they watch. The instructor makes strategic pauses to allow for discussion based on the comprehension guide.
My 7th graders fell in love with each of the characters, and some even wished they could've studied music under these masters.
