Flamenco: social history of flamenco, gypsies, civil war, oppression, Andalucia etc

This is a resource which takes you through the history of flamenco. From the Islamic Empire, Isabel and Ferdinand to Franco's Spain and lastly to now. How and why did flamenco develop? What is it now and what was it before? Lots of videos and pictures and maps to demonstrate. Lots of notes in the comments section. I am running a Spanish and Latin American Extra Curricular Club at school, not sure if this helps for history or dance but it is packed with interesting info, lots of notes in the notes section on PPT. Let me know how you are using it i.e. for what lessons etc.

GIANT Spanish Culturopoly Board Game

GIANT Spanish Culturopoly Board Game

The second of our GIANT Board Games, Culturopoly focuses on teaching students about the important people, products, and places of the countries of Mexico, Spain, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Venezuela. This is a great whole-class game that transforms the floor of your classroom into a giant board game. With a style of game play similar to Monopoly, students travel around the game board collecting cultural facts about the various countries. Once they gather enough facts, if they land on a "maleta" space, they can answer some trivia questions about a particular country in order to earn a "boleto de ida y vuelta". The team with the most "boletos" at the end end of the game wins. The best part of this game is that it is easily adaptable to any age group and proficiency level. With three different difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, Hard), it is perfect for an exploratory or Latin American Studies class all the way through an upper level Spanish class. While the Easy mode allows for students with no knowledge of Spanish, the Medium mode starts to introduce target language terms for students with minimal Spanish language proficiency, and the Hard mode focuses on play completely in the target language. This is a great way to review for culture portions of midterm or final exams, or for any day that you just need something different. In the future, there will be expansion packs to add different Spanish-speaking countries to the game. Either way, any teacher will get a LOT of use out of this one game. This Resource Includes: -Complete Set-up and Game Play Instructions for each mode -Fifty 8 1/2 x 11 Game Spaces with pictures representative of cultural items -12 Boletos de Ida y Vuelta (one per country) -12 Easy Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -12 Medium Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -12 Hard Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -36 Culture Fact Cards
