WORD - Speaking Like An Expert
What does it look like?
Students will be taught sophisticated skills of effective speaking and listening to enable them to present, debate and perform in a range of contexts, exploiting language to suit a range of audiences and purposes. Students will demonstrate sensitivity when listening to others, building on others’ views or showing empathy as appropriate. Teachers have training in how to develop on the speaking and listening skills of others. When it comes to oracy, the expectation is to be confident in communicating key ideas about current and past affairs. The implementation of academic language and vocabulary is used to build on the use of tiered vocabulary and conversation across the whole academy which will result in student’s having clear, concise and fluidity within their language.
