This course is designed for students who have built a strong foundation in all four skills of second language learning: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The curriculum is offered to those who have an interest in continuing the study and/or use of the language beyond the high school preparation courses and are prepared for a rigorous and challenging course of study. It includes a survey of literature from various Latin American and Spanish authors and poets, cultural topics, and current events around the world. Interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational assignments and projects integrate critical thinking; require analysis and synthesis of articles and broadcasts as well as reflection on personal experiences. The course is designed to correlate with the six themes outlined and required by the College Board. This class includes a comprehensive review of previously acquired proficiency in grammar in intensive preparation for the AP Spanish Language and Culture exam.
