This packet is intended to accompany the PowerPoint presentation entitled “La música hispana.” As each genre is presented, students take notes and write their impressions and opinions of the music. If used along with my PowerPoint, this unit takes more or less two weeks to complete.
However, you may use this as an organizational tool for your own presentation of popular Hispanic music. You may also divide up the 14 genres and have students do the research themselves. Assign a genre, have the students research the history, instruments and artists known for that genre.
In addition, I also have available an essay assignment and a project which you can find in my store.
The genres are: flamenco, tango, corrido, ranchera, tejana, bolero, vallenato, cumbia, bachata, merengue, salsa, reggaetón, rock and pop.
