French AP

Mme. Rokakis

2014-2015

Welcome to AP French!
I am so excited to be teaching AP French again this year. Looking at the class lists, I see that there are many students who I already know as I either had them in previous years, took them to France last year, or will be taking them this year! I am also thrilled that we have so many students who have made it to this level of French and that we have 2 beautifully sized classes! I think this is going to be a fantastic year!
That said, this will not be an easy class! We will be preparing for the AP exam which will be given in May and which comes with some important ramifications. Scoring high enough on this exam will help students to place out of college classes, saving them money and time in college.
The French AP exam requires that students be able to communicate effectively using the 4 modes of communication in French (reading, writing, listening, speaking). Attached you will find the breakdown of the test, its components, and how it is administered. During the classes, students will be doing a lot of reading, listening, writing and speaking. Much of this will be done in class, but the students will also be spending time at home each night practicing these skills. It is important to remember that this is a college level class.
The exam is theme based and there are 7 themes which we will be covering in order to be prepared. These themes are:

April

There will be no mid-term or final exam. The culmination of this class is an extremely rigorous AP French exam. In the time after the AP exam, there will be a special project.
As far as the grading for this class, I understand that the students are not ready at the beginning of the year to be scored in the manner of the AP scoring guidelines. Therefore, we have calculated a more equitable way to determine how students are achieving for their report card grades. Each unit will be 80 points, which include 20 each for the reading, listening, writing and speaking sections. In addition, there will be 10 points for homework during that unit. The sections of the units will be scored using the AP rubrics (attached), however, there will be a curve method of adding points. I will go over these calculations in class and at the parent open house.
I know that each of these over-achieving students strives for A’s in their classes. I would like to say that everyone in this class will achieve an A, but that is not reality. This is a demanding college level class and it is important that the students are graded as realistically with respect to the actual exam as possible.

One last thing: I use a class website so that students and parents may check it to see what we are doing in class, any announcements, and what homework there may be. The address of this website is RokakisFrench.weebly.com . You may also use the QR code to reach my website. This will link to the class plans and will have any on-line links and attachments of documents right there at your fingertips! Wow! Technology is amazing! Please let me know if you need any help navigating, but the goal is to make communication and access to information as easy as possible for everyone!
Again, I am excited to work with your students and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions, either by e-mail at Katherine.rokakis@pccsk12.com

or by phone at 734-582-5508.
