Event description

Description

A one-day course for teachers and school leaders (K-12)

QUALITY TALK & THOUGHT IN YOUR CLASSROOM

Recent evidence suggests that developing oracy in every lesson builds confidence, critical thinking skills and meta-cognition. Promoting quality talk and thought develops higher-order skills. In the most innovative schools, 'thinking through talking' is being valued as much as literacy and numeracy. We believe, however, that when oracy is combined with critical thinking and meta-cognition, the multiplier effect kicks in, each reinforcing the other.


This day-long workshop will give you the tools to develop all three elements, and see the connections between them. By attending, you will be able to:

  • Turn your classroom into a socratic seminar;

  • Help students to present their learning to others and reflect deeply upon it;

  • Scaffold the evaluation and structuring of ideas;

  • Understand, and assess, the four pillars of oracy: physical, linguistic, cognitive, social/emotional - so that students become powerful communicators.

The day is intensely practical - attendees will go through a series of tasks and exercises that they can transfer to their classrooms - talking in class isn't just allowed, it's compulsory!

** NOTE - Early bird rate available: $200 AUD if you book by 16th December 2017
