AP® Spanish Literature
Course Overview
In AP® Spanish Literature, Hispanic literature is presented from the medieval period through the 20th century. During the course of study, students will learn the major movements and writers in Hispanic literature, while recognizing the connections between Peninsular and Latin American literary production. Every work on the AP® Spanish Literature reading list will be covered within the course of the year following the chronological approach found in the course textbook. Students will be provided with Abriendo puertas: Antología de literatura en español Tomo I y Tomo II. (Evanston, Ill.: McDougal Littell/Nextext, 2003) All works included on the reading list can be found in the two volume text.
The course objectives are as follows:


  1. To learn the major writers, literary movements, and historical trends in Hispanic literature.

  2. To learn the techniques and language of literary analysis, criticism, and theory.

  3. To use the Spanish language as the vehicle for in class communication, discussion, and formal presentation. (The course will be conducted entirely in Spanish.)

  4. To prepare the student to take the AP Spanish Literature Exam.

In order to be successful in completing the stated objectives, it is essential that students complete the reading assignments using the assigned Spanish language text. English language or abridged versions of the works on the reading list are not approved materials for class.

Teaching Strategies


I will rely on the following aids and strategies to help students better comprehend the works they read.


  1. Pre-reading activities:

    1. Teacher will give brief lecture and notes on the author, historical context, and literary movement in order to build a knowledge base prior to the reading.

    2. Students will be taught a variety of ways to deal with difficult vocabulary. This will include teaching students not to look up every unknown word they come across, and instead extract meaning from the context.

    3. Teacher will facilitate a pre-reading discussion focusing on pertinent themes, problems, or questions dealt with in the assigned work.

2. In order to increase comprehension, students will be encouraged to use the Abriendo

Puertas Guía de estudio, highlighters, graphic organizers, and take notes that help them create a dialogue with the text.

3. Post-reading activities:

a. Students will complete the Después de leer questions at the end of each work in

order to check their own comprehension and practice writing about literature in

Spanish.


  1. Students will be given a variety of writing assignments including but not limited too: character analyses, comparisons and contrasts of different works, and poetry and prose analyses.

4. Group work and a rigorous discussion (in Spanish) of the various works will provide an

environment in which students will have the benefit of learning from each other.

Student Activities
Students are assigned a variety of oral, written, and group project activities. Activities engaged in or assigned will always be assigned with the following objectives in mind:
1. Building and improving the Spanish language skill set of the student.
2. Equipping the student with the skills necessary to analyze a poem in order to extract a greater understanding; keeping in mind the special character of poetry as compared to prose.
3. Equipping the student with the skill necessary to analyze a piece of literature in order to extract a greater understanding of it.
4. Understanding the cultural, historical, and literary context of all works presented.
5. Increasing the student’s knowledge of the civilization, culture, and literary traditions of the Spanish-speaking world.
6. Recognizing and understanding universal themes, concepts, and ideas in the Spanish language literary tradition.

Student Evaluation


1) Each semester the students will be required to write three essays, each designed to prepare

them for the type of writing utilized in the successful completion of the AP Spanish Literature Exam.

2) Quizzes consisting of multiple comprehension questions and of one or two focused essay questions will be administered after every work.

3) Every 6 weeks, there will be a comprehensive exam covering the works presented during that 6 weeks of instruction. Exams will consist of comprehension questions, reading passages, and essay questions.



4) Comprehensive semester exams will be administered in January and May.

5) Once per semester, every student will be assigned an oral presentation covering a particular work, theme, or literary movement. This assignment will necessitate a significant amount of independent investigation and use of resource materials.
