Instructor's Notebook: Tpr Homework Exercises

Ramiro Garcia

This is a sequel to Ramiro's best-selling Instructor's Notebook: How to apply TPR for best results. Each student has simple exercises that the student can do at home by themselves. The more your students do on their own, the more fluent they become in the target language.

Ramiro shares tips and tricks that he discovered about TPR during 28 years of teaching Spanish to students of all ages, including adults. That stunning success inspired his students to honor him with awards of The Most Memorable Teacher and Outstanding Teacher of the Year.

Ramiro guides you step by step with TPR lessons you can use in any language to keep your students engaged day after day. Many games, dialogues, and even tests are included. When language teachers asked Ramiro for more, he produced The Graphics Book in your choice of English, Spanish, French or German. Ramiro's TPR Bingo is the game that his students asked to play over and over.

For a solid understanding of the powerful linguistic tool of TPR, Ramiro recommends you use his books and games after you have read Dr. James J. Asher's classic book, Learning Another Language Through Actions, now in its 7th edition. Dr. Asher discovered the Total Physical Response (known world wide as TPR.) Recently, Buddhist monks in a monastery in Northern India contacted Dr. Asher to say they were users of TPR and invited him to come visit.

About the Author

Garcia, Ramiro: - Ramiro Garcia earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Spanish, and a master's degree in Linguistics from San Jose State University in San Jose, California. For 28 years, he successfully applied the Total Physical Response(TM) approach in teaching Spanish at Prospect High School in Saratoga, California, where he also served for 13 years as chairman of the language department. The students selected Ramiro Garcia as their Outstanding Teacher of the Year, and the following year, he was honored by the students as The Most Remembered Teacher. He has taught Spanish also at De Anza College and for adults in night classes. Ramiro has also organized and guided tours of students to Mexico, Hawaii, and Europe.
Asher, James J.: - Dr. James J. Asher, an industrial psychologist, served on the faculty of San Jose State University in San Jose, California for almost 40 years. He was honored as Outstanding Professor for his talent in making complex math concepts understandable to students terrified of mathematics. His breakthrough research in stress-free learning of multiple languages, the Total Physical Response, is known worldwide to language educators as TPR. From years of investigating how the human brain works in learning, he concluded that every student can understand, in the very first exposure, any complex mathematical or scientific concept, if the instructor throws the ball so that the student can catch it. And when students catch the ball on the first pitch, they have the optimal chance for long-term retention. The secret is pitching the instructional ball to the right side of the brain.
