This book is a comprehensive guide of 102 lesson plans implementing the Total Physical Response (T.P.R.) Approach to teaching language. An excellent tool for teaching beginning and intermediate ESL or foreign language students of ANY age level. Ten thematic units contain the essential vocabulary needed for survival and success in the target language.
Each unit contains:
Target vocabulary -- an overview of the words which will be taught via commands in the succeeding group of lessons.
102 individual lesson plans -- a step by step detailing of exactly what commands are to be presented. Vocabulary development is very carefully controlled. Guidelines for conducting the lessons are provided.
Review lessons -- vocabulary is reviewed at the end of each unit. Review lessons are also used as tests.
Record of mastery -- A Grid for recording Mastery, or need for further review, accompanies each Review Lesson. This provides a record of each student's progress and is helpful for reporting to parents, principal, etc.
A teacher's manual for student books is also included and contains extensive guidelines, ideas and samples.
