PAC Meeting on November 22nd, with Guest Speakers

Join us on November 22nd at 7:00pm in the PJ library for an in-person PAC meeting.

The PAC Executive have planned a fun-filled evening complete with event updates,  the latest news from Mme. Zielinski and then will cap the evening off with a presentation by Michelle Metcalfe and PJ Teacher Ilona Barran on Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS).  TPRS is a powerful and engaging second language acquisition methodology that uses highly interactive, contextualized, personalized and compelling stories to develop authentic language acquisition. Through the co-creation of class stories, dramatization, music and reading, learners acquire language in a natural way and in a stress-free immersion-like environment that promotes risk-taking and authentic communication. Michelle Metcalfe is a well-known TPRS teacher, presenter, trainer and coach. She has presented, coached, and trained teachers in TPRS and Comprehensible Input based methodologies throughout BC as well as in the US and elsewhere in Canada. Michelle and Ilona will introduce us to the research that supports the TPRS methodology followed by a quick demonstration of how TPRS works.

We will also have a few sweet treats and some non-alcoholic beverages for those who want to stay and mingle after our speaker wraps up at 8:30pm. 

We hope to see you there! Please register your attendance in advance
