Benefits of Attending the 2015 NTPRS Conference
A summer camp for teachers—why not? Just because you’re teaching already, doesn’t mean learning or harnessing your skills should cease. Teaching is a continuous learning process, especially if teaching secondary language is a specialty or primary focus. There are many facets to further improve on with foreign languages and participating in language classes for teachers may just be what is needed for a better and more fulfilling career.
Blaine Ray has been in the business of providing TPRS training and workshops for TPR Storytelling as among the very best method of teaching foreign language for over two decades now. And this year, he’s holding the 15th Annual National TPRS Storytelling Conference in Virginia. He is joined by exemplary workshop presenters and other experts in the field for a week of coaching, inspiring, and training second-language teaching professionals to help their development.
But should you really join these language workshops for teachers? Once again, it’s all a matter of wanting to be better in the teaching field. This is the one conference specifically catering to secondary language professionals, providing helpful and highly beneficial information and skills through inspiring workshops, sessions, and other special events.
For starters, this conference is open to all professionals of all skill levels. Regardless of your level of experience—whether a beginner or on an intermediate level—feel welcomed to harness your specific skill set and hopefully learn the necessary techniques as well. Also feel free to choose among the wide variety of topics and sessions that you would like to attend to. If you’re looking to learn a certain skill or activity, then this is a big opportunity to tackle those topics.
Another great advantage of attending the NTPRS Conference is spending time with colleagues in the field aside from the coaches and presenters. This is a great chance to network with other TPRS teachers, especially those from other states or even welcome a potential job opportunity along the way. And of course, come up with collaborations with other teachers regarding your TPRS teaching development as well.
Attending the NTPRS Conference might just be exactly what you need to reinvigorate our teaching, especially if you feel as though you’ve hit a slump or bump. This will not only benefit your career, but would definitely aid your students in getting better second language education.
