Take a quick look at Triángulo APreciado

"I have used the Wayside Triángulo series since I started with the 4ª Edición in 2009. I am partial to Triángulo because it contains a wide range of quality authentic materials that my students find interesting, educational and validating. This, combined with a high level of challenge, prepares students to succeed on the AP® exam. For most of my students, AP® Spanish is the first honors-level course they have ever taken. Many of my students are from low socio-economic level homes, under-represented educationally. In addition, a good number of my students come from college-educated English-only homes. Regardless of their backgrounds, my students' pass rate is 95-100% every year and much of this is due to the quality of the Triángulo materials."

Spanish Teacher, Mammoth USD, CA

"After implementing Triángulo APreciado in the 2019-2020 school year, gains in proficiency among learners were evident. I plan on using Triángulo APreciado next year (and beyond) and I would recommend it to colleagues. It is very easy to follow for teacher and learner, with many useful resources!"

J. Bryant

Spanish Teacher, Baltimore County Public Schools

"Wayside Publishing has done well in presenting curriculum that not only meets AP® requirements but also works to engage students at their level. The focus on proficiency more than just on doing well on the AP® test is preferred to how other curricula are set up. The up-to-date authentic materials are appreciated and save a great deal of time developing content for my course.

The integration of technology with physical textbooks is solid and in a year where much is done online, it is not only useable but enhances student success, and works quite well compared to other publishers' sites."

A. Hollingsworth

Spanish Teacher, Indiana

"I have been teaching AP® Spanish for over four years. Overall, Triángulo APreciado is an awesome program. It provides everything I need to support a learner's real-world language skills and cultural competency. It will be my first pick for future years and I would recommend it to colleagues."

E. Burchfield

Spanish Teacher, Indianapolis

"My learners strive to succeed in the AP® and be prepared for in-depth study in university courses. I have been looking for a textbook that fits my style of teaching, one that my students and I can connect to, one that has more manageable chapters. [Triangulo APpreciado] is the book I have been looking for."

Eglee Rodriguez

Cranbook Schools, MI

"This is my first year teaching AP® Spanish and I didn't know where to begin. This made my AP® preparation fun, enjoyable, and most importantly, now that I am a few months in I see my students are engaged."

Adriana K.

Educator,

"My relationship with Wayside has been one of the highlights of my teaching career. One year I helped 40 students pass the AP® exam with 5s and 4s. Great service and great books that help our students succeed. Thank you."
