TPRS as a sheltering strategy for ESL
The following clip comes from the beginning of my DVD “Putting it Together: TPRS as a Sheltering Strategy for ESL” The entire video and a companion teacher’s manual is available for purchase here.
Writing to Read
This brief video clip from a workshop addresses the 'writing to read' strategy. Participants use a labeled picture with sentence frames to orally generate sentences before doing a quick write about the content picture. Then, they compare their academic text to the scientific text noticing the differences between their writing and the academic writing.
TPR Storytelling Method
In this video clip filmed in Holland, Beth demonstrates the Total Physical Response Storytelling method in German with a content lesson (the water cycle). Notice the use of gestures, props, questions and acting out to make the content comprehensible to a group of beginning German speakers.
