French Language & Culture

AP 533.103 | Online | TBA


The AP French Language and Culture APSI course is designed to maximize the learner experience, providing relevant AP content and pedagogy through meaningful engagement–all focused on best practices for preparing your AP students for success. An overview of the structure and content of the thematically-organized AP French Language and Culture exam will be provided. Relevant materials and specific instructional techniques for teaching the curriculum will be presented, discussed, and evaluated. Participants will explore the new AP resources that will help them plan/focus instruction and provide them with feedback throughout the year for areas where individual students need additional focus: unit guides, personal progress checks, and the AP question bank. Participants will develop materials for use in the extensive practice by reviewing the rubrics and the achievement level descriptors that are used by the AP readers in assessing the Interpretive and Interpersonal Communication segments of the AP exam. Considerable time will be devoted to reviewing and interpreting assessment performance from the 2023 exam’s student samples. Time will be set aside for creating strategies and resources to create an updated course syllabus. Throughout the week, participants will gain deeper insight in the following key takeaways: Understanding the Course, Teaching the Course, Assessing Student Progress, and Planning the Course.
