Intermediate TPRS - Working out the kinks: Making TPRS work for YOU! Have you already experienced an NTPRS Conference? Have you attended a multiple-day TPRS workshop? Have you started using the method in your classroom? If you have done one or more of these, you are certainly not a beginner. You understand the basic concepts of storytelling and circling. Now it's time to go deeper and iron out some of the wrinkles that you've discovered working with students.
In this workshop, we will highlight the following topics: managing the class during stories to maximize student engagement, taking suggestions and story details from students, moving beyond basic circling, adding variety to spice up your teaching, and finding your TPRS style in the classroom.
With a facilitator, you will reflect on your growing repertoire of skills, observe expert TPRS teachers, watch demonstration videos with real adolescent students, and practice with trained coaches. You will leave with a few more tools added to your toolbox of TPRS skills that will make TPRS work for YOU!
