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.

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.

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.

Yes, I have coached other teachers, and I love coaching!
I am all about personalization, improvisation, and using absolutely any quirky, compelling content I can get my hands on--preferably provided by students--in order to deliver CI. My classes and workshops are characterized by glee, discovery, camaraderie, and adaptability to the interests, needs, and gifts of everyone present. Almost every class includes PQA, storyasking, activities with Embedded Readings, MovieTalk, Readers' Theater, and/or extensions of these, enhanced by the learning-and-teaching system called "Where Are Your Keys?" (WAYK), which gives students ways of tailoring input to their level and interests in real time.

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 just want to explain that I attended the ITPRS at St Pauls, I have being reading and educating myself on the methods. At night I was able to attend 2 "WarRooms" with Ben and others at the hotel. What an experience. I believe that this coming school year I can share my experience and understanding of TPRS. I still need some training on TCI specially on getting acquitted with all the terms/acronyms. Here is my personal information.

I worked with student teacher training almost every school year someone comes to my class and stay for a week or more to fulfill the NYS certification as they are finishing college. I did have student teacher too.

As I am putting now the URL of my website I would like to tell you that this coming year there will be significant changes to it, just because I learned a lot at the conference in St Pauls!!

We do a lot of TPRS stories in my classes. I'm still new, so the structure is helpful for me and the students. We also do quite a few MovieTalks and sometimes watch El Internado. We use choral translation and volleyball translation and my students love to do running dictations. I'm still experimenting, but right now this is what it looks like. Note: I am not skilled enough to train, but I would love to collaborate and/or be observed.

I do a lot of TPRS-style storytelling and PQA discussions, as well as other CI activities such as Movie Talk and Readers' Theatre. I also teach with TPRS leveled readers such as Brandon Brown quiere un perro, El
nuevo Houdini, and Agentes secretos y el mural de Picasso. My lessons are highly student driven and personalized to their interests.

TCI methods such as TPRS, Personalized Questions and Answers (PQA) novice and intermediate levels, reader's theatre, and reading are my passion! I teach intermediate level Spanish and AP without ANY explicit grammar instruction. I am a true believer in less homework and using authentic resources to engage my students.

I think the strength of using TPRS is teaching grammar through the stories and vocabulary structures. They know much of the grammar because it "sounds" right. I LOVE using the novels to teach culture and help students acquire vocabulary.
