Included are ten Práctica Auditiva activities designed to help students both improve their listening skills and also practice specific tasks on the AP Spanish Language exam. Each Práctica Auditiva exercise is designed so that students may do them both inside or outside of class. Each includes specific directions, a video component, and a picture in the context. The Prácticas are based on current events and/or specific themes found on the exam. These ten activities cover: Los abortos en El Salvador, ¿Qué pasará con la acción ejecutiva del Presidente Obama?, El futuro del inglés, El último hielero, Espacios públicos, Falta de respeto en Perú, Los abuelos, Las minas antipersonales en Colombia, Los desaparecidos en México – Parte 1 – La protesta, and Los desaparecidos en México – Parte 2 – El encendio.
The directions for these activities are written in Spanish.
These would also be appropriate listening/homework activities for a level four class. Students do not need to be familiar with the Spanish AP exam to complete these assignments.
There is not an answer key as these are open-ended activities. I choose to grade them using the AP rubrics.
