As you might already know, I have been reading La casa de Bernarda Alba by Federico García Lorca with my small group of Spanish language B IB higher level students. They are only girls in this group so I think they have enjoyed reading this tragedy about passionate love and freedom! My girls have just finished reading the book and I thought it might be a good idea to link it with flamenco as Lorca had strong connections with this art.
I therefore showed this video by the UNESCO explaining where this art comes from and what it represents:
I prepared a worksheet with questions about music in general and the video itself. The aim was to make my students critically think about how music and dance define a culture.
You can download the worksheet here: flamenco
or you can also find it on Teachers Pay Teachers for free!
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did!
