AP Annual Conference Submission
This session will demonstrate how to effectively prepare students for the Cultural Comparison task common to the AP German, French, Italian, and Spanish Language and Culture Exams. Through hands-on activities, participants will learn about the structure of this task, how AP readers apply the scoring guidelines to evaluate student performance, and explore useful phrases and successful practices on how to prepare students of all levels (1-AP) of instruction for this and other presentational speaking tasks. Participants will also be shown how the use of authentic materials in the classroom in every level will improve students’ performance.
