ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
The Hawai‘i Association of Language Teachers (HALT) is pleased to bring Blaine Ray, creator of TPR Storytelling®, to Hawai‘i for a special two-day workshop over the Presidents’ Day weekend in February 2014. Here’s what people have said about it:
“TPRS is much better than anything out there.” – Dr. Stephen Krashen, author and world expert on language acquisition
I am in the middle of my fifth year teaching with TPRS at St. Louis Community College. Why? Simple. It Works.” – Dr. Roy Day, French Teacher [The Language Educator, January 2006]
“TPRS has brought my class alive and my students (both in my German and Spanish classes) are actually speaking the target language this year. TPRS works!” – Adin Eichler
TPRS teachers report that their students have improved language skills and that enrollment has doubled or tripled in upper level classes. Two California teachers report their students passed the AP test in one year of TPRS instruction!
Blaine Ray is offering a fantastically low rate for HALT members ($50) for the two-day workshop. To register, please submit your completed registration form with check in $US, payable to HALT, postmarked no later than January 31, 2014. We will not be accepting other forms of payment for this workshop.
Enrollment is limited, and we will be accepting registrations until the workshop is full – first come, first served. Once received and processed, we will send an email confirming whether a person has gotten a spot or not in the workshop.
WORKSHOP BOOKS (optional):
If you are interesting in ordering the optional “Fluency through TPR Storytelling” and other books referred to in the workshop at a discounted rate, please indicate so on the registration form, so we can get a good estimate. Limited supplies will be available for purchase onsite. Please note that these books are separate and not covered in your registration fee.
The Dole Street Parking Structure (Zone 22) next to the UH Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies will be open and selling parking passes ($6 flat rate). Re-entry permitted with pass on the same day. Parking is typically free on holidays.
Street parking may also be available along Dole Street.
No food will be provided during the workshop. Please feel free to bring snacks or beverages to tide you over during the workshop, but please clean up afterwards. During the lunch break, participants can either eat the lunch they bring or go out to eat at one of the nearby eateries around campus or the Waialae area.
