TPR to TPRS in Elementary with Jason Fritze
Jason Fritze (Medina)’s classes are one part stand-up comedy, one part drama class. In story after story, Jason entertains his students while at the same time bringing a vast knowledge of methods that guarantee successful language acquisition. It’s hard to believe you’re in a class at all. Jason has lived in Spain and traveled extensively. He brings culture and language to life when he teaches. His personality and immense knowledge of how languages are acquired and how reading contributes to increasing proficiency make him a valuable asset.
Jason is a National Board Certified Teacher in World Languages Other Than English, an author and a presenter. He is originally from Oklahoma, where he taught Spanish and French for seven years in Norman Public Schools and was named teacher of the year after becoming a Comprehension-Based Methods teacher. He has also taught in New Jersey and Tennessee, and his teaching experience spans from early elementary to adult. He regularly presents at state, regional and national language conferences and conducts workshops/in-services for language teachers throughout the United States on Comprehension-Based Methods and Reading Strategies in the WL classroom. Jason has collected hundreds of children’s books in both Spanish and French that he uses to provide additional reading for students. Jason began teaching Spanish and French for Fluency Fast in 2005.
Jason presents in-services for school districts throughout the year on reading as well as Comprehension-Based Methods and is frequently invited to present at state and national conferences as a keynote speaker and workshop presenter.
