Step Up to AP, Textbook BLH245

US$87.95

Step Up to AP: Chinese Language, Culture, and Society is an all-new intermediate Chinese program designed for high school students taking the AP Chinese Language and Culture course. Using the current developmental trends of contemporary China as its focal point, Step Up to AP situates China in the context of increasing globalization to help students understand the interactions and relations between China and the world. Students will engage in a wide range of topics and gain knowledge of China’s role in important areas such as technology, economics, trade and business, climate change and green energy, literature and the arts, as well as the film industry. They will also learn about various aspects of contemporary Chinese society, including travel and transportation, urban and rural development, population and community, geography and ethnic diversity, endangered animals and wildlife conservation, health and wellness, sports and leisure, and science and technology. Through these topics, students will develop an awareness and appreciation of Chinese culture and society, in addition to gaining and enhancing their Chinese language proficiency.

This program covers one year of instruction and consists of a Textbook and a Workbook with companion websites. The Textbook offers nine units which engage students in an exploration of Chinese culture and society in both contemporary and historical contexts. Each unit helps students deepen their understanding of Chinese cultural products, practices, and perspectives, and enhances their intercultural communicative competence. The Workbook features a wide variety of exercises to help students develop all four language skills across the three communicative modes (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational). Many of the questions are modeled after the AP Chinese exam format to train students to be exam-ready. Also included in the Workbook are two full-length AP practice exams. The companion websites host a range of resources to meet the needs of instructors and students, including audio files, answer key, and teaching suggestions.
