AP® Chinese will provide deeper understand and broader application into Chinese language and culture for intermediate Chinese learners. This course will focus on applying Chinese language and cultural skills in real-world problem situations, and will provide the opportunity to experience a variety of topics in Chinese history, geography, music and arts, literature, daily life, and national and global issues. Almost all of the course is taught in Chinese. This course will apply a student centered diagnostic learning approach. Authentic resources in both oral and written Chinese will include recorded lectures, online discussion and debate, TV and video clips, Chinese newspaper articles, and instructions from Chinese products. Group work, one-to-one extra help, and a variety of engaging activities and experiential projects are employed in the course to meet the individual needs of students. All students enrolled in this course will be prepared to take the Advanced Placement exam in the spring. Students may select the AP® or Chinese V track in this course. AP® students will be expected to delve deeper into the topics, take AP®-style assessments, and prepare for the AP® exam in the spring. Chinese V is recommended for students who have completed four or more years of Chinese but do not want to prepare for the AP® exam.
