BCATML is thrilled to work with TPRS experts Michelle Metcalfe and Adriana Ramirez and offer a full day of TPRS training!

Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS) is a second-language teaching methodology that was originally developed by Blaine Ray in the 1990’s.  Grounded in current second-language acquisition research (Stephen Krashen, Bill van Patten), the method continues to develop today and has become one of the most powerful instructional methods to promote natural, authentic second-language acquisition in the classroom.  Class stories are at the heart of the TPRS method and are the vehicle for providing the one essential element for language acquisition to occur:  a steady stream of personalized, compelling and contextualized Comprehensible Input.

Attendees for this one-day training event will have receive hands-on coaching by both Michelle and Adriana in small and large group sessions. Instruction and training will be personalized and allow you the opportunity to benefit from both of these women's experience and training in the field.

Only current BCATML members are able to participate. Non-BCATML members must purchase a Provincial Specialist Association membership at the time of registration in order to participate.
