This workshop is designed to provide the participants with an overview of the new AP Spanish Language and Culture Curriculum Framework that went into effect September 2013. Participants will examine the themes as well as the recommended contexts and overarching essential questions for exploring each theme in the new Framework. The institute will also address issues of curriculum and of Pre-AP* courses. Some time will be devoted to evaluate the sample syllabus to deliver the course. Participants will engage in a discussion of textbooks, websites, and resources available for the course. Rubrics and students samples will be used for participants to become familiar with the scoring of the free response sections of the exam. They will also develop a final project according to the needs of their students during the week, in consultation with the instructor. Participants are encouraged to bring copies of successful activities to share.
