Unlocking Speaking and Listening
The teaching of speaking and listening has again been identified as central to children's learning and literacy development, yet it is an area in which teachers have little confidence. This book aims to address a recognized need by tackling key issues surrounding speaking and listening with rigour, depth and a strong focus on research.
The contributors offer practical advice on teaching speaking and listening creatively from the Foundation Stage through Key Stages One and Two. It also covers significant inter-related areas:
- drama and storytelling
- gifted and talented pupils
Written by expert contributors from Brunel University, this book is a vital resource to help both trainee and practising primary teachers understand and promote the importance of speaking and listening as an effective tool for learning across the primary curriculum.
