Yes, I have coached other teachers, and I love coaching!
Because I was the only TPRS teacher in my district I had to modify the textbook as best as possible. The strategies that worked best for me were movie talk, reader's theatre with the novellas and making sure I PQA'd daily with the kids, then circled. I passionately believe the CI is the only way people learn languages and that tapping into the students' imagination is the best way to keep them engaged long enough for language to click.f.

I use a variety of CI strategies to maintain novelty. I focus on backward design from a text of some sort (teacher-created story, novel, authentic text). I do use TPRS, but not as much as in the past. I consider TPRS one of the tools in my toolbox, but I am no longer exclusively a TPRS teacher.

I am a Circling strategy enthusiast who listens to what students say and contribute during lessons, adjusting on the fly in order to maximize engagement. You could say I am a recovering "Type A" who is discovering the value in Non-Targeted, yet highly researched and informed Input. My key to success in a CI environment has not only been establishing, but more importantly adhering to my own classroom rules/procedures, and course expectations that support language acquisition.

I switched all 4 levels of German from textbook to TPRS 12 years ago and absolutely love it and the students too because my program grew to over 250 students. I introduce vocab with gestures, do a ton of PQA, a story with actors about once a week, partner retells, FVR library. I am very animated, we have great fun and laugh a lot.

After teaching in a French university and a French lycée for many years, I "retired" and began giving private lessons. As a result I teach more hours than I ever did before, but I'm enjoying it. My classes are small and my students are motivated. I use films with subtitles and help my students reach the point where they can read in English for pleasure. I use CI techniques all the time, TPRS only occasionally since few of my students are true beginners.

I focus on techniques to "fill in the holes" for lesser-taught languages, non-phonetic scripts, and other underserved teacher and student populations. My training uses simple methods like cards to make TPRS skills accessible both to potential TPRS teachers and to teachers in non-TPRS situations who want to boost the comprehensibility of their classrooms.I stress the basic values of TPRS/CI: 100% comprehensibility, use (not misuse) of the native language, personalization or customization for engagement, and extensive reading on the foundation of acquired language.

I structure each week around 3-4 target verb phrases, and have a cycle of activities from story-asking to writing. I am weak on PQA skills, finding that I do better with a well-defined story script with minor adjustments from student details. I always build my students towards reading a TPRS novel, and love working with novels.

I use TPRS in my classroom that lead to embedded readings from relevant news articles. I write my own stories and TPRS readings. I do 2 stories a week and use movie talk, listen and draw, dictée, choral reading, and other common CI strageties.

I love a good story. Lately, I'm finding just how simple an effective story can be. I'm good at working with students to find where their interests lie, and on coaching them to work as a group as they create meaning together. I have lots of techniques I think of as "winging it" -- chants made up on the spot, quick partner changes, assessments and encouragements.

I use a variety of TCI strategies like interactive TPR, personalized questioning, storyasking, MovieTalk, Listen & Draw (developed by Diane Neubauer), embedded readings and music. For methe most fundamental skill of TPRS/CI methodology is "circling" and it's the foundation of every activity I do in the classroom. I utilize the Cold Character Reading method (developed by Terry Waltz) to teach written Chinese.

I use a combination of PQA, gestures, story asking, story telling, and movietalks. How much of each depends on what my students are into, but generally they are most exciting about story asking--where I have an idea and set vocabulary to target, but they come up with all the details and some aspects of the plot.
