LOOK WHAT"S NEW AT St.Hugh in Our Spanish Program!
We have purchased a new Spanish program for the non-native Spanish language speakers. This program is called TPRS "Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling". The TPRS system is a method of second-language teaching that uses highly-interactive stories to provide comprehensible input and create immersion in the classroom.
TRRS focuses on fluency by teaching stories. Fluency comes by:
- students focusing on the details of a story
- students not focusing on the language
- students picking up the language unconsciously
This system uses a storytelling platform to provide these basic skills:
- teach to the students not the curriculum/practice for mastery instead of covering a curriculum through story retells: students frequently retell and engage in the stories
Mr. Rolando Carmenates is certified to teach this program. We have adopted it as a pilot program for the remainder of this school year.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mr. Carmenates at your convenience.
