In considering our topic for this week, I became interested in how storytelling can be used in teaching languages to children. My research on this turned up a method of teaching called TPRS, or Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling. TPRS is a relatively new technique in language teaching, so there is not much literature on it yet (or at least not much that isn’t dense scholarly articles), but I did turn up the above article, in which a spanish teacher describes her experience with using TPRS in one of her classes. To learn more about the topic I recommend the wikipedia page on it, as most of the other resources about this method seem to be books and forums.
