If you are lucky enough to have traveled in Europe, you’ve probably seen members of the Romany ethnic group gathered outside of popular tourist sites, Known variously as Roma, Gypsies, Tsingani, Boyash, Zingari, Kipti and, in Spanish, Gitanos, the Romany rank among Earth's most marginalized ethnic groups.
'The Romany, Centuries of Discrimination,' is a 400-word informational text that can help teachers supplement their lesson plans for a variety of subjects - from History to the Arts to Ethnic Studies. It is included with the 'Hola, Flamenco' purchase bundle, but also makes an excellent standalone resource - a real-world example that helps students contemplate the continuing existence of racism in the world.
The quiz is ten questions, multiple-choice, with all material taken from within the text. It is hoped that by completing this exercise, students will improve their vocabulary, learning comprehension skills, and their understanding of European History and the Romany people.
