Total Physical Response (TPR) opens the door to a dynamic, comprehensible-input-driven
language acquisition experience. Once used as a curriculum in and of itself, in this new edition,
Teaching English through Action can also be an element of a broader comprehension-based
language program.
In this extensive TPR manual, calls to movement and action provide the linguistic input we
know the brain needs to acquire language, as well as the physical activity we know the brain
needs to maintain focus. As an added bene t, this movement helps connect language to meaning
through muscular memory.
Starting with simple commands, high frequency language, and common classroom and household
themes, the 10 units in Teaching English through Action guide teachers through the use
of ever more complex structures and ever more elaborate and interactive situations. For example,
teachers give commands and students perform the actions; teachers ask questions about
the actions and students respond; students give commands to each other; teachers and students
talk about what they will do, what they are doing, and what they have just done.
Listening leads to action; speaking in the target language follows naturally.Teaching English
through Action is a comprehensive guide to the TPR approach to teaching and acquiring
English for beginning and intermediate students of any age. It provides:
1. A revised introduction that describes the origins of Total Physical Response and places
TPR in the context of second language acquisition theory and comprehension-based communicative
language teaching in the 21st century.
2. An overview of the book’s basic lesson structure.
3. A set of 102 complete lesson plans, spiraling from listening/receptive lessons to plans for
speaking/expressive participation by learners.
4. Lessons which are divided into ten thematic units, containing key vocabulary for a variety
of common situations. Each unit includes:
• A list of target vocabulary that will be taught via commands in the lessons of the unit.
• An overview of what’s new in the unit: new types of structures, new levels of interaction
with learners, new skills and activities to enhance the lessons.
• Daily lesson plans with a step-by-step detailing of commands, so you can have them at
your ngertips.
• Side notes with tips and suggestions for particular situations.
• A review lesson or Unit test, including a reproducible grid to record mastery.
