Prerequisite: Spanish V Honors; AP Spanish Language and Culture

The AP Spanish Literature and Culture course uses a thematic approach to introduce students to representative texts (short stories, novels, poetry, and essays) from Peninsular Spanish from the Middle Ages through the Spanish Golden Age to the 21st century, Latin American, and United States Hispanic literature. Students develop proficiencies across the full range of communication modes (interpersonal, presentational, and interpretive), thereby honing their critical reading and analytical writing skills. Literature is examined within the context of its time and place, as students reflect on the many voices and cultures present in the required readings. The course also includes a strong focus on cultural connections and comparisons, including exploration of various media (e.g., art, film, articles, literary criticism). Participation in the Advanced Placement exam is an expectation of this course.

Note: Heritage language speakers of Spanish require department supervisor approval.
