2 New framework and example questions
Why this new AP test? Currently not all AP tests are created equal most universities retest the students upon their arrival. the college board wants to standardize the AP language tests, so that universities will use the results more readily.

Just a few words: Curriculum and framework was developed since 2007, with all languages together. AP readers and experts checked the new course design and again spoke with the college board. French too is getting a new course, and there won’t be a French Literature test anymore. Next year, the other langauges will follow.

6 Context! integrate use of language connect
Course Themes the AP German Language and Culture course is structured around these 6 subjects: „Designing the AP German Language and Culture course around themes creates an interesting, meainingful context in which to explore a variety of language concepts. Themes help teachres integrate langauge, content, and culture into an interrelated series of lessons and activities that promote the use of the language in a variety of contexts. A theme may be used to plan a brief unit of study or a comprehensive unit spanning a greater period of time, or to connect with AP courses in other disciplines.“ Context! integrate use of language connect

7 Lets try this ourselves
Structure the course with 6 essential questions – one per topic. Lets think of a unit for each of these subject matters. which authentic materials what topic matters what current events included? Remember, you are anticipating the type of texts that students might see on exams! Only authentic materials are used on the AP tests from now on. 1 6 2 Ex: What is Beauty? Has it changed? If so, how? 5 3 4

8 Lets review that pedagogic jargon briefly
Context for the course Even grammar should be taught within a specific context! Everything will from now on have CONTEXT it’s the new buzz word. What does that mean for you and your course? The course needs to focus on context with a thematic approach. It must focus on culture with the three Ps. Lets review that pedagogic jargon briefly

9 Quite some lingo: What are the …
Authentic materials! is buzz word # 2 5 C’s? 3 P’s Connections Culture Comparison Communities Communication Product Practices Perspectives Mercedes Duzen/Siezen Sprache und Kulture – Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz Duzen/Siezen Basiert auf Perspektive, jemanden, den ich kenne, nicht kenne / wird anders angeredet Innerhalb & außerhalb der Schule in Deustchland Again, examples?
