The Assignment from Your Teacher

Students will be expected to comment on the various course materials through papers. Your job is to critique, evaluate and discuss, not merely summarize a film or an article. Present a point/thought/idea in your writings and don’t be afraid of sharing it with the class.

A Friendly Reminder

Research is a process with a lot of steps.  There are no shortcuts if you want to do your best work.  The best way to get your assignment done well and on time is to start early.

Course Description

Like the corresponding college courses, the AP Japanese language and culture course supports students as they develop the productive, receptive, and cultural skills necessary to communicate with native speakers of Japanese. Students' proficiency levels at the end of the course are expected to reach the intermediate-low to intermediate-mid range, as described in the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines.
