Structured around the themes and sub-themes presented by the College Board, this Spanish Learning Program offers you a framework through which to explore the products, practices, and perspectives of Spanish-speaking cultures. Exercises engage students in the three modes of communication through reading, listening and observing, writing messages, conversing with others, writing essays, and giving oral presentations. Through activities and assessments designed in conjunction with authentic materials your students will develop the necessary cultural and linguistic competence to communicate effectively and perform well on the revised AP Spanish Language and Culture exam.
Triángulo Aprobado can be used in any order. You can connect a sub-theme from one global theme with a sub-theme from another. They interconnect, offering flexibility and endless variations of texts and audios. Cápsula culturales present a wide range of interesting cultural matters, and at the conclusion of each one, Comparaciones can be used for further comparison of the home culture with Spanish-speaking cultures. Preguntas culturales elicit thought about what a product in a culture is, how it is used and why it is used. Triángulo Aprobado contains a triple glossary—Spanish/Spanish, Spanish/English and English/ Spanish—of the vocabulary words along with the chapter and sub-theme number where they can be found in context.
A Learning Site supplements the text with flash cards, practice exercises, videos and audios. Additionally, Learning Site access gives teachers all raw and edited audio and video resources, scripts, a gradebook, and sample exams and syllabi. The Teacher’s Edition contains an annotated answer key and suggestions on ways one can use the text to assist the students’ exploration of Spanish language and culture.
The Triángulo Aprobado Learning Site is loaded with resources for you and your students. Following the same structure as the textbook, the Triángulo Aprobado Learning Site is divided into the themes and sub-themes created by the College Board. Every one of the thirty-six subthemes has fourteen associated activities: four based on material in the book, plus ten additional activities that can only be found on the Learning Site. 252 downloadable audios provide hours of indispensable practice in the interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational modes. Every time students log in, they will be preparing for the AP exam with activities designed in the same style as AP tasks.
Teacher access provides many additional resources including mid-year and final syllabi templates, sample AP exams, answer keys, audio/video scripts, and a user-friendly gradebook.
In the Community Forum, Triángulo Aprobado teachers and students from around the world get an opportunity to meet and learn from each other. The Classroom Forum is a private space for the teacher and students to upload and share resources, discuss tonight's homework, and more.
We've provided a sample for you to review with the materials from one of the 36 subthemes.
