Teaching through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS)
Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS) is a successful method of second language teaching that uses highly interactive stories to build vocabulary and structures of a language and create an atmosphere of immersion in the classroom, whilst decreasing student’s apprehension and stress of learning a second language.
During this workshop you will:
- Experience the method as a learner to discover its potential.
- Learn about the principles of TPRS and its key skills, including strategies for engagement.
- Have a hands-on experience of the method by designing and delivering a mini lesson whilst being coached by Blaine Ray, the creator of the method.
