  1. Laurie is actually presenting in Lewiston, Maine on October 10,11 and 12.

    The Agenda:
    1. Using Music in a TCI class
    2. Assessments (TCI style and standards based)
    3. Embedded Readings
    4. Using TPRS (the three steps) a DEMO with a lesser known langauge
    5. Sabrina will do will be doing a demonstration of “YouTube and Discuss.” What is “YouTube and Discuss”? It is along the same lines as “Read and Discuss”; however, you watch a short clip with your students, pick out what’s happening, and discuss it as a class – all in comprehensible input of the second language. Sabrina will be demonstrating this in Italian, so attendees can experience it in a non-familiar language, like our students.

    6. Peer coaching on Saturday morning…

    I can send a registration form to anyone who might be interested (scrosby@rsu16.org)

    (As an added bonus you can meet Mary Beth – August teacher of the month!) 🙂

    1. Hi Karen!!! Yes, please come to MAINE in October!!! I would love to meet you! and it REALLY IS a beneficial workshop – especially with Laurie and Sabrina!!! You will be learning some great strategies!

      @Judy – can you please send me info on Victoria? My friend teaches English in Andalucia, and she might be interested in contacting her; I definitely would like to contact her for next summer travel.
      Thanks, MB mbt719@yahoo.com

      1. Thanks so much for the invitation. The Lewiston ME workshop looks great! I will be travelling East in Novemebr, so not sure if I can make this, but will seriously consider. Will Laurie be doing more workshops like this in the coming year?

  2. Hello Karen!

    This year you are living near a jewel of a woman: Jody Noble. Chill and I spent a week with Jody this summer and our brains and hearts grew three sizes at least!!

    I teach Marcus Whitman HS…in the center of the triangle of Penn Yan, Geneva and Canandaigua…not far from Ithaca at all!

    I’m traveling around this fall to different places, but none in California (that I know of !) Massapequa on Long Island in Sept., Maine and Pittsburgh in October, ACTFL in Orlando and a TESOL conference in White Plains N.Y. in November. In the spring I’ll be at Central States in St. Louis in March.

    I’m trying to put together a calendar of this school year for CI/TPRSers on my Hearts for Teaching blog. If any of you are presenting anywhere, let me know and I will put it on the calendar1!!!

    On that note…Chris S….was it you looking for training in Washington state…Michele Whaley will be presenting on Embedded Reading on Oct. 19 in South Kitsap.

    I cannot tell you how soul-saving it is to see other TPRSers during the school year!!!

    with love,

    1. Thanks Laurie. I would love to meet Jody while I’m here. Do you have her contact info? Also, I am considering your Lewiston workshop. The agenda looks great. Can you send along more details? I am really looking forward meeting you, hopefully before I return to Ithaca!
