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 globalization to help students understand the interactions and relations between China and the world.
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. The Workbook features a wide variety of exercises to help students develop all four language skills across the three communicative modes (interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational). Also included in the Workbook are two full-length AP® practice exams. The companion websites host a range of resources, including audio files, answer key, and teaching suggestions.
