The spirit of the Caribbean comes alive! 'Destination: Caribbean' is a seven-part essay series paired with a short documentary movie of the same name. Both are dedicated to using music as a means of understanding the past.

Part Three is a 850-word journal-style essay that documents life on Antigua during its annual Carnival festivities. Paying special attention to the island's adoption of Calypso from Trinidad, this section features interviews with local personalities, music historians as well as photos of the Carnival parade.

This brief quiz contains five multiple-choice questions, each designed to challenge's students' reading comprehension skills and analytical abilities. Rather than simply asking them to repeat information found in the text, this quiz encourage students to understand assimilation as a process, one that continues throughout the Caribbean today.

The essay series is an accompaniment to the short documentary movie 'Destination: Caribbean.' It can also be used standalone and included into a wide variety of curricula. Featuring topics that range from dance to history to the economic realities of being a Caribbean musician, each reading comes with a series of worksheets, activities and quizzes.
