My original TPRS CI lessons

Here I organize posts that feature TPRS or CI lessons I have written. They are organized by the level that they were written for, but I think it is easy to scale up a basic lesson or scale down one of the intermediate lessons.

  2. Thanks for your support, Mike. I started teaching last year and didn’t want to follow our text and was inspired by your approach and ideas and resources. I’m a frequent visitor. Steve

  3. I was looking through -and loving everything on your site!! I thought I had seen an 8 week lesson plan for the end of third year. It was based around la muerte and showed El orfanato at the end. Am I going crazy or did I see this somewhere else??? Thank you very much for your generosity in sharing your ideas!!

    1. That must have been somewhere else. I am slowly going back through my stories and simplifying them so that they are easier for students to read independently… and then the advanced grammar can be circled in class before or afterwards. So many projects…
