Follow up with 300 drawings on tear-out strips that help your students zoom ahead. You receive step-by-step guidance in applying pictures to increase the fluency of children and adults in English. As a bonus, 60 multiple-choice graphics are included to test student achievement. TPR (known worldwide as the Total Physical Response) is a powerful linguistic tool developed through 20 years of meticulous research by Dr. James J. Asher at San Jose State University, founded in 1857 as the historic first public university in California.
