Teachers can’t keep anything that they’ve learned to themselves. It is in their very nature to teach what they know. As I have become a student of Teaching with Comprehensible Input (TPRS being one of the methods that I use), I have also become a teacher of Teaching with Comprehensible Input and TPRS. When you know something incredible, you can’t help but share it!
Here are some resources that I have created for teachers interested in honing their skills in TPRS and other CI methodologies:
Curriculum Map: View the lesson plans that I use in Spanish 1 and 2
Demos: See some demos and read explanations of basic techniques
How to use my story scripts: Read about the process I go through when I introduce vocab for a story
How to ask a story: Read about how to actually ask the story using one of my scripts
MovieTalk: Learn about this awesome method, developed by Dr. Ashley Hastings and championed by Michele Whaley, and view a demo
Circling template: Use this form to practice the circling strategy
Lesson planning: View the PDF from my presentation on developing storytelling units that contain a cultural focus
Authentic resources: View the handout from my presentation on making authentic resources comprehensible for novices
Comprehension Checks: How to check for comprehension in TPRS®/CI classes.
