The spirit of the Caribbean comes alive! 'Destination: Caribbean' is a seven-part essay series paired with a short documentary movie of the same name. Both are dedicated to using music as a means of understanding the past.
Part Four is a 800-word snapshot of contemporary Puerto Rican life, ranging in scope from the mountainous interior regions to the thumping nightclubs of the capital, San Juan.
This brief vocabulary worksheet contains eleven terms that help to illustrate Puerto Rico's unique musical history. Students who complete this worksheet will have a greater understanding of how Spanish, Moorish and African influences combined to produce some of the Caribbean's best-loved genres.
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 series of worksheets, activities and quizzes.
