AP® Spanish Language and Culture and Advanced Spanish students will be able to interpret and discuss historical, cultural, and current event topics pertaining to the various communities that exist in the Spanish-speaking world. Six themes are explored throughout the course: Personal and Public Identities, Families and Communities, Global Challenges, Science and Technology, Contemporary Life, and Beauty and Aesthetics. Students use information from a wide range of sources to engage in learning, discussion, and analysis activities as they deepen their understanding of and confidence with the grammatical structures of the language. Throughout the year, students engage in reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities and assessments. Students may select the AP® or Advanced Spanish track. AP® students are expected to delve deeper into the topics, take AP®-style assessments, and prepare for the AP® exam. Advanced Spanish is recommended for students who have completed three or four years of Spanish, but do not want to prepare for the AP® exam. Advanced Spanish may also be appropriate for 9th or 10th grade heritage speakers.
