Since 2019 he has been working at Packer Collegiate Institute as Spanish teacher. He has been an AP Reader (Language and Literature) for the last 10 years.
Pablo earned his bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and Education in Argentina in 1996 (ICP) and his Master of Arts in Teaching Spanish as Foreign Language in 2007 (Universidad de Barcelona). He holds a post-graduate diploma in Bilingual Education.
This seminar is designed for new teachers of AP Spanish Literature and Culture. The goal of the seminar is to develop a course that will fulfill the requirements of the audit. In order to do that participants will first familiarize themselves with the content and structure of the exam by taking it at the beginning of the seminar.
After this, participants will focus on those strategies that have been proven to be the most effective ways to teach critical reading and analytical writing; participants will implement these strategies during the seminar.
Equipped with knowledge of the exam and the strategies that allow students to succeed on it, participants will develop units of the course which integrate learning objectives, organizing concepts, essential questions and required readings. These units will be tailored to suit participants’ students, providing them with differentiated instruction that satisfies their needs and develops their potential.
¡Te esperamos! Read what people are saying about the AP Spanish Literature session. Also, read the course agenda. We hope to see you at the 2021 Online WaltonAPSI!
APSI Online Course Description
En algunos seminarios sólo expone el instructor, no aquí. Aquí la comunicación es en todas direcciones.
En algunos seminarios se llevan a cabo una gran cantidad de actividades inconexas que entretienen, pero luego del seminario nos queda todo el trabajo por hacer solos en casa, no aquí. Aquí no aseguramos de que el trabajo se haga en el seminario al mismo tiempo que nos divertimos y participamos.
En algunos seminarios, nos dicen qué es lo que los estudiantes deben aprender, pero no nos dicen cómo lo podemos enseñar, no aquí. Aquí la enseñanza de estrategias es clave.
Si quieres estar en un seminario que te prepare acabadamente para enseñar el AP Spanish Literatue and Culture, ven al 2021 Online WaltonAPSI este verano, no te arrepentirás. Las evaluaciones de todos los participantes anteriores han sido las que nos han alentado siempre a mantenernos en este camino.
