Free webinar sponsored by the Center for Language Instruction and Coordination (CLIC): "Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS): Why, What, and How"

Description: Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS) is an input-based language teaching approach drawing from Stephen Krashen's theories. TPRS provides a framework for teaching classes completely in the target language -even for absolute beginners. Through the steps of (1) establishing meaning, (2) creating a story that is acted out live in class, and (3) reading, students understand and use the target language to communicate right away. Participants will learn the principles TPRS teachers use to choose activities that make the best use of class time, the three steps of TPRS, concrete skills such as "circling" with repetitive questions, and what the research says about TPRS.

Presenter: Dr. Karen Lichtman is an Associate Professor of Spanish Linguistics in the Department of World Languages and Cultures at Northern Illinois University. She is the director of the Educator Licensure program, training Spanish, French, and German teachers. Before becoming a linguist, she taught middle school Spanish using TPRS. Her book Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS): An Input-Based Approach to Second Language Instruction was published in Bill VanPatten's Routledge series in 2018.
