We continue to work with the grammar (verbs, adjectives, object pronouns etc.), as well as working on our fifth unit: Films and writing (the film trailers are at the bottom of this webpage).  The students are also continuing to reflect on the cultures and history of Spanish Latin America.  Of course, everything we do in class continues to be in the Spanish language.  The students also continue to enjoy the Mexican telenovela, "La madrastra" ("The Stepmother").

A.P. SPANISH (Periods 5 & 6) 
The students have finished their unit and grammar work, and are now focusing on practice tests and test-taking skills.  Specifically, we have been doing intensive practice with simulated conversations and writing persuasive essays.  The students are also still enjoying the Mexican telenovela, "La madrastra" ("The Stepmother"), when our class schedule allows it.
