Paul Creek Curriculum using the Direct Acquisition Method
The Paul Creek Curriculum was originally developed for interior Salish languages and was based on Dr. Stephen Krashen's theory on Second Language Acquisition. It has been translated to Gitxsanimx or Sim Algyax with the intention of using it to teach adults. It's not fully complete. This curriculum could be revisited and completed more fully. In the meantime, it's still a great resource that could be implemented (or elements of it) into an adult immersion course.
There are written stories that have been collected for the purpose of developing TPR-S lessons, although this will have to be re-visited as we are still building capacity in the TPR-S method from the time the books were translated..
Total Physical Response-Storytelling (TPRS) is a method of teaching language, also based on Dr. Stephen Krashens work on 2nd Language Acquisition and Dr. James Asher's work in developing the Total Physical Response (TPR) Method.. The following books have been translated from TPRS BOOKS, an American company dedicated to providing resources to language teachers and language learners.
TPRS is a teacher-driven method. These stories are created using the 500 most commonly used words in English. We've translated the first 3 stories, and used the Canadian stories they had available.
