19 TPR and TPR-S Total Physical Response (TPR) Physical movement to respond to verbal input No verbal response required until students are ready Total Physical Response Storytelling (TPRS) Uses vocabulary from TPR Students listen to and watch stories, act them out, revise and retell

20 History and Theoretical Background TPR -- Asher TPR-S -- Blaine Ray Childhood / first language acquisition theories The right brain / left brain divide Krashen -- comprehensible input, affective filter Vygotsky -- scaffolding Cummins Interactive Pedagogy Principle

21 Procedure for TPR Students do actions with teacher Students respond to teacher commands as a group and individually Students give the commands Expansion activities Variations Practice New vocabulary introduced and demonstrated

22 Procedure for TPR-S Hand TPR Comprehension Checks Mini-situation (3-4 TPR words) Mini-story (15-20 TPR vocabulary words) Main story (5-7 mini-stories combined)

23 Advantages of TPR Easy to implement and no translation is needed Minimal prep Any age Less stress for students Interest Effective input Perfect for team teaching

24 Disadvantages Not ideal for more advanced learners or shy students Use of the imperative may lead learners to use inappropriate or rude language in the future Largely teacher-directed without attention to individual interests
