8 thoughts on “TPR Breakthrough”

  1. Eric,
    Thanks for this tip on using just a few students at a time. It is a great strategy for taking the pressure off certain students and like you said class management. The activity is still full class engagement because other students are learning by observation.
    I also saw Kristy Placido demo something that reminds me of this at iFLT. She narrated a part of her new book Frida and had students acting out the various parts of the story.

      1. I spent a summer in China (2012) with Kim. At the end of the summer, doing presentations on a unit we prepared as part of the program, we found that 3 of us were doing TPRS-like things. That was my summer deciding it’s going to be all CI from then on. I was so frustrated by my own experience of being asked to write sentences using barely-familiar, formal, complex Chinese sentence structures. (I had a great summer though & got a lot from class despite the not-so-great homework!)

  2. I really like starting Spanish 1 this way. I managed to do about four weeks of classical TPR this year with them and have now largely moved away from it, though not completely. It can be a lot of fun with impressive early gains.

  3. I just observed a brand-spanking new teacher in my building do this style of TPR, with 2 volunteers at a time. I was so happy to see this new colleague of mine make some serious inroads with CI. I’ll have to ask him if he got the idea from Asher.
