Summary Oracy is a subject currently undergoing examination, due to the emphasis placed upon it by the National Curriculum. With an emphasis on practice, but embracing the major theoretical issues involved, this book contains numerous exercises, examining the issues surrounding oracy in schools. It describes the many ways in which teachers can encourage pupils to talk, using picture books, media-based discussions and English as a second language
