A: Hi Blane, Thank you for inquiring about 97 TPRS Story Scripts. Purchase of the print book does not include access to a digital copy. Have a wonderful day! -Kristin
Q:Is the digital copy PDF or a word document ? Can you type on the pages?
Answered by Anne, April 16, 2018.
A: Hi, Kristin answered the first part of your question. As to what you can do with the completed story, here are some things I do. Type it up and read it. Type it up with changes/ additions and read it. Read in pairs; as a class; chorally. I use the website "textivate" for a lot of different literacy activities. Use sentences from the story for a dictation. Write the story in 8-10 sentences, read it to the students, have them draw a story board and then re-tell it from the story board.

A: Hi. Thanks for your questions. These stories are in English, they are basically simple plot lines that incorporate everyday situations, but with opportunities for student contributions. The teacher translates a story into the target language before class, and then tells it to the class, while asking the class for certain details, and adding them to the story as he/she tells it aloud. (The scripts are really for use by the teacher.) Part of the valuable input students get from the process is having the teacher ask them questions and responding, and the opportunity to participate in creating the story keeps them engaged. (A more detailed explanation and some tips can be found in the section of the book called "Using the Scripts.") -Kristin
Q:I already own Volumes 1 and 2 of the author's scripts. Are these new or just a compilation of her other books?
Answered by Customer Service, July 12, 2018.
A: Hi Jenny, No there is not any particular sequencing to the stories, but there are different levels due to the complexity of the story/the language used. They are all heavy on high-frequency vocab and common situations and as long as the story chosen is appropriate to the level taught, don't need to be done in any particular order. Have a great day! -Kristin

A: I would like to add, and emphasize really, that scripts can and often should be modified to suit the particular class.
Q:This book came up in the Spanish section, but the book seems to be all in English. Are the scripts not available in Spanish?
