Students learn history, culture, poetry through “Guantanamera”

Here’s a rare peek into an actual classroom at the High School for Arts and Business, where Spanish-speaking students are learning about the literature and culture of their native language by analyzing the lyrics of the song “Guantanamera,” which were adapted from a poem by Cuban hero Jose Marti.

The video was created by Integrated Curriculum and Instruction, one of the city’s School Support Organizations that provides professional development for teachers and other services for their network of schools.
