As ESL and Foreign Language teachers, it is very important for us to engage students in our lessons so that they can a have a meaningful learning experience. This course will focus on the different techniques and skills which are involved in using the TPRS method of instruction. Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling, or TPRS, allows teachers to offer a more hands-on learning approach to their students. The activities practiced in this course will show you ways in which you can put the textbooks aside for a moment and build on students’ reading and listening comprehension skills in a more interactive way. If you are an educator of grades K-12 in the areas of Foreign Language or ESL, this course will help you to better understand and incorporate new strategies in your classroom. NYS Standards, student’s assessments, goals and outcomes will be addressed.
