This resource for both AP and IB Spanish language classes intentionally combines topics of both programs to make six robust units that will help both IB and AP Spanish language students gain a more in depth understanding of the presented topics.
This resource also aims to seriously work towards diversity, inclusivity and social responsibility in our Spanish classes. We are living in times of challenges and change, and we must help our students analyze social issues from non traditional perspectives.
We have found similarities between the AP and the IB Spanish programs by looking at each of the prescribed contexts and areas. We believe that it is important to address interdisciplinarity in the Spanish class anywhere in the world.
This resource contains 6 cultural contexts from AP and 5 thematic areas from IB. Given that the AP program has one more unit compared to the IB program, we suggest that IB teachers spend longer in the identities unit. We believe that the proposed practice activities and exercises will make for adequate and valuable formal assessment that students can complete even during remote instruction.
*IB teachers must be aware that we have not included strand I type of questions as we believe that this particular strand allows for more openness.
