The College Board has posted new Planning and Pacing Guides on the AP Central German Language and Culture home page: http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/courses/teachers_corner/2257.html. Right now there are two guides available - one written by JC Morales and one by Peggy Grasso - and a third is on the way. These are far more detailed than sample syllabi and contain comprehensive instructional design that addresses all aspects of the Curriculum Framework. There is also commentary by both authors that provides insight into why materials and activities were chosen and how to apply them in the classroom. This is a rich, extensive resource that will be invaluable as you prepare your AP syllabus, get students ready for the new exam, or make your lesson plan for tomorrow's class.
