Webinar #36: The 4 “P”s
February 26 @ 10:00 am
The 36th KTS Webinar is open for registration! Join KTS Teachers Katie Cunningham and Siobhan Doherty for an introduction to the 4 “P”s of Experiencing Accents on Saturday, February 26th at 10am PST/1pm EST/6pm GMT.
For folks curious about Knight-Thompson Speechwork, this webinar will cover the concepts of The 4 “P”s that create the framework of KTS pedagogy: People, Posture, Prosody, and Pronunciation. With some experiential exercises, we’ll examine each P, including how they interact with each other to support a panlingual approach to accent work.
Registration for this webinar will be $10 to cover hosting costs. This webinar will be recorded, so if you can’t attend live, you can still register and watch at your convenience.
