Scope & Sequence


This guide presents a curriculum for the Languages Other Than English instruction of Spanish students in the Level 5 AP Spanish Language and Culture course. The course is designed for students who have completed Spanish Level 4 AP successfully and have opted to further their linguistic and cultural understanding of the Spanish-speaking world at the 12th grade level. It is the second year of a two year Advanced Placement course that will culminate with the new Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture Exam in May 2014. This course incorporates the New York State Standards and the National Standards in Foreign Language Education. These standards include “The Five C’s of Foreign Language Education:” Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons and Communities. The AP Spanish Language and Culture course provides students with opportunities to exhibit their proficiency in each of the three modes of communication (Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational). The new curriculum framework centers around six essential themes to integrate language, content, and culture into an interrelated series of lessons and activities. Each theme will be explored through essential questions intended to engage learners and to guide learning activities and performance assessments. Every effort is made to provide the students with as many authentic materials/situations to familiarize them with the target language and culture. Literary and journalistic texts, advertisements, and authentic audio materials are used to further language acquisition and cultural understanding. The LOTE department has chosen to use various textbooks that we believe will best prepare the students to achieve the goals of the new AP exam and the state and national standards.
