Azulejo, 2nd Edition
Azulejo’s standards-based curriculum, simultaneously emphasizing context and themes, introduces students to high-level critical thinking as it prepares them for success in the AP® Spanish Literature and Culture Course.
Multifaceted prep for the Spanish AP® Literature and Culture Course
Azulejo is divided into units that progress chronologically but are organized along a common thread. The chronological approach allows students to study the historical context in which the work was written and to appreciate how authors see, engage, and influence their world. Essential questions are reprinted at the end of each unit to facilitate class preparation.
The Azulejo Teacher Edition provides Notas para el profesor to accompany every text, describing the theme, structure, historical context, voice, point of view, and more. Sample answers to the discussion questions and essays are also included.
Azulejo offers AP® practice tasks for every author on the exam. The Analytical Essay Guide details the three key parts of an analytical essay. Based on both teaching experience and the College Board's guidelines, a Writing and Correcting Guide for Poetic and Analytic Essays delineates what is expected of an outstanding critical essay and establishes a template for grading.

- AP® style tests and literary terminology matching quizzes composed of multiple-choice reading analysis and free-response questions
- Unit tests for additional reading analysis, free-response, and interpretive listening practice

A Community Bulletin Board

Learning to hold a conversation
Mock conversations with pre-recorded conversation prompts challenge your learners to hone their conversational skills. Learners record themselves replying to comments and questions, and the recorded conversations can be added to their portfolio as an artifact.
Tracking Their Own Progress
Online student portfolios follow learners from unit to unit, level to level. Students can upload evidence of what they can do in the language - assigned Can-Do statements, activities, quizzes, audio files, PowerPoint and Word files, and more. This allows them to set goals and reflect on their progress related to Can-Do Statements.
Efficient, Integrated Grading
Use the online calendar to remind students of upcoming assignments and deadlines, assign tasks to specific learners or an entire class, and more. Explorer® lets you know when your students complete their work and alerts students as soon as you’ve graded. Grade each quiz question response without opening each question in Explorer®.
