Bienvenue à la classe combinée
français Pré-AP III & IV AP,
The French III Pre-AP, IV AP class is a combined class. The class is taught in French; however, each level has different language proficiency targets and expectations.
The class is taught using an AP syllabus approved by the College Board, and is taught on an A/B cycle so that students receive an expanded knowledge of the the 6 AP themes.
Students in Pre-AP French may take the AP exam, although it is highly discouraged.
Students should check with each university or junior college for AP credit equivalents. There is no pass/fail on the AP exam, only qualification. Each AP score qualifies for a certain amount, and in some cases no, of college credit.
The AP exam is one test, on one day, at a specified time. It is an academic exam used to measure students knowledge and proficiency in French as set by College Board. This exam in no way measures what your student can fully do with French since this test is narrow and limited. It is a high stakes test, and can be a stressful experience. Therefore, students are encouraged, starting in Level 3 (Pre-AP) to look at and become familiar with the AP test format, and to look at past tests on the College Board website.
Students enrolled in the Pre-AP/AP class are eligible to receive awards from outside organizations such as the Oklahoma Chapter of the Alliance Français, including Outstanding French Student, Student Membership, and the coveted Student Fellow.
Moore Public Schools now offers a Seal of Biliteracy, as does the Oklahoma State Department of Education through the Director of World Languages. Students must score a 19 or better on the English portion of the ACT exam, and qualify with a 3, 4 or 5 on the AP French language exam, or qualifying scores from another qualifying exam. Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, students will be able to take a French proficiency test to qualify them for the French language part of the Moore Public Schools Seal of Biliteracy requirements. Students who qualify will receive regalia to wear at graduation, will have their qualification noted in the graduation program, and will have the qualification noted on their permanent transcript.
In 2018 Westmoore had five French students qualify for the Global Seal of Biliteracy.
In 2019 Westmoore had 1 French student qualify for the Moore Public Schools Seal of Biliteracy.
