Become an AWESOME TPRS/CI Teacher!
Everything you need to know to be AWESOME!
Absolutely the best online TPRS training available.
Learn how to effectively start the year, use comprehensible input to actively engage your students, create effective assessments, and get your students to be able to communicate in the language in less time while keeping your sanity so that you can be AWESOME!
The Immediate Immersion™ Course is a teachforjune™ Webversity™ course that will teach you the essentials of CI instruction including TPRS®, assessment and proficiency-based grading, MovieTalk, embedded readings, classroom management, and much more throughout the entire school year!
This course is a perfect extension of any TPRS or CI training you may have already had, whether it was an inservice, 2- or 3-day workshop, or one of the regional or national conferences, The Immediate Immersion Webversity Course will remind you of things you may have forgotten, enforce and extend what you already know, teach you a few things that weren’t included in your previous training experience, and give you the time to practice between skills.
Effectively manage your classroom for maximum impact and engagement. Classrooms with consistently-applied expectations, natural consequences, and practiced routines run like well-oiled machines.
Comprehensible input is the key to language acquisition. Surround your students with language they can understand and watch their proficiency levels soar and their communication increase like never before.
Create effective assessments that accurately measure your students’ true ability in the language without wasting tons of class time and without spending hours grading. Get your life back!
Get your LIFE back!
Spend less time assessing your students, less time creating more effective lessons, and more time interacting with your students so you, too, can have your life back.
This was the single most-important investment of both my time and money this school year. I learned so much from Scott, gained new tools to use in the classroom, and received feedback on what I am doing in the classroom. I will definitely be back next year!
I highly recommend both Scott’s Immediate Immersion and Webversity class. I was the only one in my district doing CI and I was much more successful following his plans since they have been tested and used in classrooms for 10+ years. The webversity also gave me a way to troubleshoot and get ideas from Scott and other teachers all over the world. The teachers manual that comes with the curriculum has a TON of helpful strategies and suggestions to help make CI work for the classroom that would be very helpful for a new teacher.
