Whenever I teach my grade 5 and 6 classes, I always put in my mind that everything should be simpler and easier to understand. When impromptu came, I needed to research ways for my students to understand and apply it better especially in actual scenarios. One strategy I found was the P.R.E.P. method. P.R.E.P. method stands for:
P - Point
R - Reason
E - Example
P - Point
This method can be used to organize your thoughts when you're in an interview or tasked to say something spontaneously in front of an audience.
Here's the breakdown.
POINT is your immediate or direct answer to the question.
REASON answers the question "why?". Why is it your point?
EXAMPLE is your added information that will support your point and reason. It's better to provide examples based on your own experiences.
POINT is almost the same on how you started.
Teacher's question: What is your favorite pet? Why?
Point - My favorite pet is a dog.
Reason - I love them because I consider them as my best friends,
Example - I have seven dogs at home and all of them help me cope with my stress and anxiety. My dogs also help me secure my house whenever I'm alone or out of the house. In return, I make sure that they have the essentials to live such as food and water. They are free to roam around my house because I don't want them tied up. They also have regular check-ups in the veterinary clinic.
Point - Because of the help they have given me in my life, I always consider dogs as my favorite pet.
This is the P.R.E.P method. Believe me or not, my students were able to grasp this lesson and they were able to use this during application interviews.
