The AP Spanish Literature and Culture course is an activity oriented course that will prepare participants for the new curriculum that began in the 2012-2013 school year and help them develop strategies for building a successful self-sustaining program. Participants will receive numerous ideas, handouts, strategies, and materials that will engage, develop, and motivate students to succeed. The workshop will focus on understanding the new course curriculum, exam, and teaching the works from the new reading list. We will also look at strategies for teaching the works that will prepare students for the new AP exam. This will include recommended strategies and activities to work with literary terms, contextualization of the literary works, and the development of thematic lessons and units with a particular focus on appropriate formative and summative assessments. In addition, we will also discuss the importance of vertical teaming and the integration of technology into the literature classroom. Finally, participants will prepare for the course audit and have opportunities to share their best practices that work with students!
We are currently planning AP Summer Institute 2014!
