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.

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1 Central America - Reading Comprehension - Cut and paste Activity - Group Discussion - Poster Design & Creation - Writing Activity The following project pack contains 3 sections: 1. COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS 2. PICTURE ELEMENTS 3. POSTER TEMPLATES COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS are short texts containing information on the country in question. Students are to read each extracts and make notes of the important points as a reading comprehension activity. The PICTURE ELEMENTS have been specifically designed to portray information contained in the extracts. Students are then presented with the POSTER TEMPLATES, there is 1 poster template for each of the countries in question. Each template has 4 blank spaces each of which should contain a cutout of a picture element. Next to each space there are blank lines for a short paragraph to be written. An option would be to divide students into small groups and assigning a different central american country to each group. Within each group, students will discuss the main information points relevant to the country assigned, select 4 picture elements relevant to the country and together come up with 4 short paragraphs relating the picture to the country on the basis of what they have learned from the extract. This is a multi-level project activity as the length and complexity of the paragraph can be adjusted to the level of the students in questions. EXTENSION: This project can lead onto a bigger and more independent activity, where students go on to carry out their own research on the assigned country (in other words they create their own extracts) and proceed to nd suitable images or even their own drawings to create large posters. Ultimately they would have to produce short paragraphs relating their images/drawings to the information collected. Total no. of pages: 31

The original tracks can be easily purchased on iTunes for less than £1, alternatively I have provided Youtube links below for each song: CAMILA - MIENTES https://youtu.be/xftFxCYQTdk RICARDO ARJONA - EL PROBLEMA https://youtu.be/dVFIddt-SEw MONEDA DURA - AL SUDESTE https://youtu.be/bRJM0G1Pc4U The provided material offers a wide range of possibilities in terms of lesson activities depending on the language level of the students in question. For more advanced students an idea might involve a class discussion or writing activity describing the theme of each song. Other possibilities include research projects on the individual artists and their countries of origin.
