Carnival in Dominica: Bann Move Masquerade celebrates and explains a unique folk tradition practised in Dominica, in which disguised participants move to the sound of flute and drum. The 15-minute DVD provides documentary footage; the eight postcards contain interviews with islanders, and the book suggests ways of exploring this fascinating material. There is much scope for maths and design in the making of headgear; for music in learning the cyclic instrumental patterns, and for literacy. The resource pack for Carnival in Dominica: Bann Move Masquerade includes a book (pound;7.99), a DVD (pound;8.99) and set of postcards (pound;5.99) available from Education Service Providers International.
