Spanish Literature and Culture

In this course, participants will engage in a professional exchange of ideas surrounding the 2013 revised AP Spanish Literature and Culture course. Participants will examine components of the AP Curriculum Framework including learning objectives, descriptions of expected student performance, the reading list, literary terms, and themes and essential questions. Participants should be familiar with all of these texts prior to the course. For an accurate list, participants should access the College Board website at www.collegeboard.com. We will discuss models of instructional design for the course that uses themes and essential questions to make comparisons across literary periods and genres. Participants will also review various authentic audio texts and artistic representations related to course content. They will examine sample questions for multiple choice and free response sections of the exam. Participants are encouraged to bring their own texts or anthologies containing the majority of these works. This course will be conducted in Spanish.
