(This posting includes a handout which you are welcome to use with your students.)
This activity will show how TPR (Total Physical Response) can be more student-centered than the traditional teacher-directed approach. Also, it is a pre-step to the TPR activity “Movie Directors,” which I’ll share in the next posting.
In this activity, students are put in groups of three (Students A, B, C). Each member is given a paper with different “commands.” They read their commands to their partners, who listen and do the actions.
