Product Description
'Destination: Caribbean’ is a seven-part essay series dedicated to using 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 religions evolved as methods for slaves to preserve their culture and undermine their captors. As we discover through reading, a Rastafarian hill farmer scratching his living from the soil has little in common with the gaudy pageants of Carnival, yet both are a living testament to the unknown masses who lived and struggled before them.

The essays come complete with photographs from the islands, as well as interviews with local historians and cultural figures. In addition to the 10,000 word essay series, every purchase includes ALL of the following Common Core-aligned materials for grades 6-8:
