Pre AP Spanish Units

I spent the summer rewriting my Spanish 4 curriculum.  My goal was to create a better bridge between my level 3 classes and AP level 5.  I wanted to create units that prepared students for the specific requirements and assessments of AP.   The result was several Thematic Units based heavily on authentic materials with resources and strategies to make them comprehensible.   I recently made four of them available.

Each unit is a 20+ page document that includes activities, assessments and links to videos and other resources.  They are designed to prepare students for the requirements of an AP course but with less intimidation.  They fit best in a Pre AP Spanish 4 class but can be used in AP classes or any level before.  Even if your school does not have an AP course, these can be useful.

    Bryan — this is amazing. You have pulled together a massive amount of wonderful material. I wish I taught an upper level so I could use some of these materials!!! Actually, it is extremely helpful as I truly believe that those of us who are teaching the initial years of language acquisition should be planting seeds and providing students with input that will support what the upper level teachers are covering.

    Thank you so much for generously sharing!!

    Hi Bryan, I don’t teach Spanish (I don’t even speak it, lol) but I was wondering if your materials might still be helpful to me as an AP German teacher? Even if for no other reason than to see how you structure your units. Would I be able to get the gist of it? Thanks in advance!

      Ooh. Good question. I think you would get the gist of it. But since most of the materials are based on authentic sources, I’m not sure it would be worth it for you. If you have specific questions, maybe send me an email and I’ll see what I can answer before you make a purchase.

    Hi Bryan,
    These look amazing and I was just talking to our ap teacher about me needing to do more of this in level 4! Talk about timing! Do these come with Google slides to present the info to students?

    I tried to look at the units but it only shows one at TpT. Do you have the other 3?

    • bryankandel says:

      Hi Myriam. I recently took down most of the units from TPT to update the links and resources. It has been a few years since I created them, and because they were based heavily on current events and links, some things have changed. I’m hoping to update and republish them before the start of the next school year. Thanks!
