  6. JOSÉ DÍAZ AP Spanish Language Workshop Materials 2006-2007 “Developing and Integrating Skills at Different Levels”

  7. “ As I will show, teachers can incorporate many activities and steps at any level that will prove to be very useful to students learning Spanish. The key is to make sure we do not use these skill-building activities solely in the AP course but that we begin incorporating them at level 1. By the time students enroll in the AP course, they will have acquired a wealth of techniques and skills that will prove extremely useful when dealing with more complex texts. Although the exam is at the end of the tunnel, what we do in class is what counts in developing the students’ proficiency, and that should be our main objective. To begin, you need to examine your curriculum, especially your textbooks and make decisions.”

  8. Goals for this workshop: • 1.Take a closer look at the skill-building • activities that help students reach the • benchmarks of the AP Spanish Language • exam. • 2.

If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job.  ~Donald Quinn
