2,321 views

Published on

Participants will learn how the AP Chinese Language and Culture course prepares students to demonstrate Chinese proficiency across the three communicative modes (interpersonal, interpretive and presentational) and in the five goal areas (communications, cultures, connections, comparisons and communities), as outlined in the “Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century.” Participants will examine the 2010 exam results, will learn about professional development opportunities, and will investigate best practices used by K–12 teachers in a standards-based curriculum that prepare students for the AP challenge. The session will conclude with a question-and-answer period.
