The Values and Benefits of AP (Advanced Placement)

As we keep in mind the expectation and responsibility we have to prepare students to take the AP exam and do well, I ask you to take a few minutes to view the two short videos regarding AP and reflect. I highly recommend you share them with your students, especially those in Level 4 & AP Spanish.

**In the settings of the video, you can add subtitles and adjust those subtitles to translate to English if necessary**

Seeking: Level 1 French Class and Level 1 Spanish Class to Pilot LinguaFolio Online

Want students to take control and be self-directed learners, using CAN DO statements to track progress on goals in Language Acquisition? This is a great leadership and learning opportunity for you, and for students to reflect on their language goals using the mobile iPad app. Remember, Setting Clear Objectives (I CANs) is a high-leverage practice for us in World Languages.

I am seeking one Level 1 French class and one Level 1 Spanish class to pilot LinguaFolio Online this year.

View the short video below for more info.
