Product Description
'Destination: Caribbean’ is a combination documentary short and seven-part essay series.This multimedia curriculum uses the region's most popular music forms – Reggae, Calypso, Salsa, etc. – like a time machine, transforming rhythms, lyrics and melodies into a vehicle for understanding the historical conditions that created them.

Many of the Caribbean's traditional dance steps, costumes, instruments and even religions, evolved as a way for slaves to preserve their culture and undermine their captors .As we discover through reading, a Rastafarian hill farmer who ekes out a living from Jamaica’s northern coast has little in common with the gaudy pageants of Carnival, yet both are a living testament to the unknown masses who came before them.

The 'Destination: Caribbean' essay series is on sale here as a standalone, without the corresponding movie. In addition to the 10,000 word essay series, every purchase includes all of the following Common Core-aligned materials for grades 6-8:
