The spirit of the Caribbean comes alive! 'Destination: Caribbean' is a seven-part essay series dedicated to using music as a historical guide.
Part Six is the 3200-word climax of the series. Incorporating all the lessons learned in previous essays, it discusses the uniquely miserable conditions endured by Jamaica's slaves, and the unique cultural output that emerged as a result.
This extensive vocabulary worksheet contains twenty-eight terms that help illustrate the historical, social and spiritual aspects of Jamaican culture. Students who complete this worksheet will have a greater understanding of Rastafarianism, Marcus Garvey, the sugarcane industry, as well as the evolution of such Jamaican musical forms as Mento, Ska, Dancehall and Reggae.
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 set of worksheets, activities and quizzes.
