Spanish Language and Culture, Combined Teachers – APSI Course Description

(for new and experienced AP teachers)

Yensen Lambert, Greens Farms Academy, Westport, CT

The APSI is designed to familiarize teachers with the AP Spanish Language and Culture Course and Exam. The Institute attends to the needs of both new and experienced teachers of AP Spanish Language and Culture. Throughout the four days we will examine best practices and strategies, and present activities for increasing student proficiency in the three communicational modes with an emphasis on integration of skills and use of authentic materials. We will review the exam format and rubrics using the College Board’s latest materials. Participants will be invited to actively participate and share their knowledge and experiences with the entire group on a daily basis. Likewise, they will develop and share individual projects and specific activities to be used during the academic year, and will leave with a toolbox of strategies to implement and successfully teach the course.
