Are you new to AP Spanish? Are you overwhelmed by the new themes and teaching a content-based advanced language course? Than this is exactly what you need. This 157 page product will help guide you through the sixth unit of the year with detailed daily lessons and pre-made activities with answer keys. The unit takes about 5 weeks to teach.
This unit follows my college board approved syllabus that you can download for free.
Just submit the syllabus to College Board and follow these plans and your students can be as prepared as mine were for the 2014 -2017 exams. All students got 3’s or higher with an average score of 4.1 - all 4 years.
These are daily lesson plans for the AP Spanish Language and Cultures Theme Public and Private Identities. The plans require the textbook Temas (Temas, AP Spanish Language +Culture By Vista Higher Learning) and either AP Spanish, Preparing for the Language and Culture exam( by Pearson) or other AP style practices. You will also need a copy of the DVD, The Mask of Zorro.
The unit plan contains:
Daily plans with activities and suggested time frame
grammar practices with uses of se and indirect speech
test sections for my supplemental material
This is a vocabulary unit designed for an AP Spanish Language and Culture class. It was created to complement and supplement the textbook Temas, but could be used in any other upper-level course that is studying the Private and Public Identities because this contains the whole vocabulary unit and does not require anything from the book. The practices are fill in the blank, identifications, logical or not and write your own sentence in style. An answer key is provided for all discrete items.
The unit contains:
- A 6 page vocabulary list with the words in Spanish, in English and a definition in Spanish
The list is divided into the six contexts for the unit and the cinema short “El Espía” The first three contexts were called vocabulary 6-1 and the last three with the cinema short words were called vocabulary 6-2.

- A 4 page selection of Isabel Allende’s novel, Zorro. This selection tells the story of Diego’s vision quest as a youth and how he finds out his destiny as Zorro. I like to make the kids guess which famous hero is being described in the selection to see if they can make the connection. There are 10 multiple choice plot questions, 5 quotes to explain in simpler Spanish and three short answer free response questions. The extra credit question is do they know which hero is described.
This selection is way under the 10%/ one chapter fair use rule and thus should not infringe on any copyright issues.
