TPRS Program

LOOK WHAT”S NEW AT St.Hugh in Our Spanish Program!

We have purchased a new Spanish program for the non-native Spanish language speakers. This program is called TPRS “Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling”. The TPRS system is a method of second-language teaching that uses highly-interactive stories to provide comprehensible input and create immersion in the classroom.

TRRS focuses on fluency by teaching stories. Fluency comes by:

  • students focusing on the details of a story
  • students not focusing on the language
  • students picking up the language unconsciously

This system uses a storytelling platform to provide these basic skills:

  • comprehension
  • repetition
  • interest
  • teach to the students not the curriculum/practice for mastery instead of covering a curriculum through story retells: students frequently retell and engage in the stories

Mr. Rolando Carmenates

…is certified to teach this program. We have adopted it as a pilot program for the remainder of this school year.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mr. Carmenates at your convenience.

We know that the additions of these programs will enhance the educational experiences of our students!
