Summer Assignment Documents

Pre AP 4 and AP 5 students will be expected to do the following over the summer:


Students in both Pre-AP 4 and AP 5 must find three authentic resources in Spanish (one video, one written article, and one recording such as a podcast or a song). Students must document which three resources they are using on their guides (see link above for forms required for submission). Students cannot use the same authentic resources as their classmates. These reviews should be individual. Students will be expected to complete an analysis for each source. 


In the target language, students should discuss the theme(s) present in their authentic resource, summarize the argument/points of interest, and provide a personal reaction. Translators should be used sparingly. The writing they submit should be a clear representation of what they already know how to do in the target language. Heavy translator use will result in a zero.
