Integrating AP Spanish Literature Works into the Spanish Language Course
In many language classes, interpretive and writing skills are often still treated and practiced independently. Nevertheless, the interpretive and presentational modes of communication are highly connected and support each other in language learning. This session offers techniques to help students connect the interpretive and presentational modes and expand their critical reading and analytical writing abilities by incorporating some works from the AP Spanish Literature course into thematic units for the Language course. Some of these works include El hombre que se convirtió en perro, Las medias rojas and Como la vida misma.
