Nagasaki JALT:

TPR-S, Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling

Date: Saturday, February 23rd, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Melinda Kawahara, Lindy Lizard's English House, Kagoshima

For Nagasaki JALT's second meeting of 2008, come and experience the newest teaching method that's sweeping North America by storm. TPR-S. What is it? Why does it work? How do you do it? For those teachers searching for something new and unique, this is for you! Following the natural teaching approach, TPR-S focuses on teaching sentence structures through story telling. This workshop will use colourful, eye appealing storybooks for young learners as an example. In this hands-on workshop you'll experience first hand how your students feel when learning another language and also be given a chance to practice what you've learned. Our presenter, Melinda Kawahara, has been teaching in Japan for almost 20 years. As well as having her own school in Kagoshima, she is the author of the Lindy Lizard storybook series, which incorporates the TPR-S methodology into the story.

All welcome!
