Objectives
This course is divided into thematic units following the six themes required by the College Board. Students are required to discuss connections and comparisons made between the new and previous works read, as required by the questions which appear in the College Board exam. The majority of the literary selections contain sections that are linked to the various themes of the course. Activities, such as discussion of art works, music, videos, etc., are directed with those themes in mind. It is assumed that students have previously been exposed to advance language structures in the courses leading up to the AP Spanish Literature and Culture course; however, literary terms are introduced and discussed as they appear in the works and how those terms enhance the particular work being read. Through the study of the following AP themes, students build the necessary skills to reach the assessment objectives through the expansion of their receptive, productive, and interactive skills. AP themes to be covered include: Multi‐cultural interactions (Las sociedades en contacto) Time and Space (El tiempo y el espacio) Duality of being (La dualidad del ser) The construction of gender (La construcción del género) Interpersonal relationships (Las relaciones interpersonales) Literary creation (La creación literaria) Textbooks Abriendo puertas, Ampliando perspectivas Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013 Bowen & Bowen Azulejo – 2nd Edition Wayside Publishing, 2012 Colbert, Kanter, Ryan, Sugano Momentos cumbers de las literatures hispánicas Pearson Prentice Hall, 2004 Rodríguez, Rodney T.

ASSESSMENT/GRADING Since the primary focus of the AP literature class is the AP Literature exam, students will primarily be evaluated using exercises simulating the AP exam. The AP rubrics, TJ or class specific rubrics, as well as Fairfax County rubrics may be used. Daily assignments and class participation comprise a wide range of activities and are an integral part of the grade. During any 3‐4 week period, AP Spanish Literature students will be evaluated based on several or all of the following skills/content. Since synthesis of ideas and integration of skills is a primary focus of the exam, students will often be assessed on multiple skills concurrently.  Listening comprehension  Writing  Reading comprehension  Literary Grammatical function & usage  Thematic vocabulary development  Oral Presentations
