Lesson Plan: La Diversidad de Religiones y Rituales en el Caribe


Overview
Students will work in groups to conduct research about religious diversity in the
Caribbean.

Time Required:
40 minutes

Lesson Goals and Objectives
The objective is for AP Students to learn about the different religious practices and rituals
in the Spanish speaking Caribbean and the influence they have had in South Florida. In
addition, the goal is for students to do the research to obtain and process information, in
spoken or written form, on this cultural and historical topic and orally present the
information to the class. This will help them to effectively communicate orally in the
target language regarding rituals and religions of the Caribbean and will prepare them for
the oral part of the College Board AP Spanish Exam. Student will also communicate in
writing by blogging on Blackboard their feelings and opinions, and answering two of
their classmates about the topic.
Students will be divided into groups of four. Each group will be provided a region
to research; Puerto Rico, Republica Dominicana, Cuba, and Florida. They will
then look up information on religions and rituals: Christianity,(catholic,
protestant), other influential religions: Islam, Judaism, and Rituals of Santeria,
Espiritismo, and Brujeria
Students will research the internet, read newspapers and magazines, and seek
documentaries and videos.
Students will trace religions and rituals to Spain and Africa.
Students must explain what are Santeria, Brujeria and Espiritismo.
What forms of Christianity are there, (Catholicism, Protestantism)?
What is Lent, Semana Santa, and Pascua Florida?
What other religions are there? Judaism and the arrival of Islam.
How have all these rituals influenced the culture in Florida? Did immigrants from
the Caribbean bring their religion and rituals when they migrated to Florida?
Students will create PowerPoints, poster boards, create own videos using Movie
Maker (previously taught in lab), and include other types of media to present
information to the class, including music used during rituals.

brought to Florida.
