Product Description

One of the most fascinating aspects of music and dance is how they often mirror the historical conditions from which they arose. Flamenco, with its exotic movements and rhythms, helps to tell Spain’s complicated story of migration and religious conquest. It acts as a looking glass, a living monument to the region's Arab, Jewish, Gitano (Romany) and Eastern roots, that might otherwise be lost.

'Music as a Time Machine' is a 2000-word informational text that can help teachers supplement lesson plans for subjects ranging from History, Music and Dance to Cultural Studies. It is included with the 'Hola, Flamenco' purchase bundle, but also makes an excellent standalone resource - as a 'read and discuss' classroom activity, or take-home assignment.

This worksheet consists of two parts: (1) a fill-in grid that compares and contrasts two of Flamenco's most important Palos on such points as origin, influences and variations; and (2) a ten-question True / False section designed to improve students' reading comprehension and applied knowledge skills, while helping them understand and enjoy the beauty of Flamenco.

***An exciting and innovative way to teach the Common Core! 'Hola, Flamenco' is in Spanish, with English subtitles. Appropriate for all ages,* subject matter is best suited for Grades 6 and up. All academic materials are in English. Purchase bundle includes the informational texts and study materials listed below***
