  1. Ironically, I remember getting reps on “talks too much” for at least 45 minutes at a workshop this summer. It’s a nice idea. We PQA the target so much that the kids easily pick it up in the story. Classic TPRS. But it’s confusing for the teacher and boring for the kids.

  2. this is the crux of why i’m having a hard time understanding the hoopla (that you wrote abt on Facebook). Of course newbies take everything more literally as they hone their foundational skills. But what is the targeted supporters’ contention? That we go too wide with NT? That we don’t reveal our roadmap before we start story-asking? Sorry but I’m a dense and lowly elem teacher…so I don’t get why we’re not all playing nice, and respecting differences in style (not substance.)

  3. I use Anne’s scripts as just a great story start. A way to spark the imagination. Even if I think I might get the structures she suggests into the story, the story actually goes where-ever the kids take it. The results are so fun and the students are the ones that decide which structures end up being repeated. Combined with an invisible as the main character, you can’t go wrong. For example, I used the first sentence from Anne’s script, “The Audition”. In my class, it turns out that a monster named Timmy who lives in a garbage dump wants to be a singer and goes to England to audition for One Direction and crazy things happen! (and this is German 3, so invisibles are definitely engaging at the high school level!) The repeated new structure ended up as “wants to be” and “makes fun of him”. I am trying very much to go untargeted using invisibles and OWI characters this year. It is definitely bringing joy and laughter to my classes. Thanks to all the great teachers who inspire me on this blog.

  4. Yes! For me, these scripts are more about the situations, which are hilarious. I’ve used them more as seeds, knowing I’m no longer in control once they are in the ground. Soil preparation, weather, phase of the moon, and intention play huge roles in how and when the seed will sprout and what will become of it!
