Building Skills All of these games and exercises can help your students build different important oracy skills, such as confidence, listening, and analysis.   Action Research: Using Strategic Inquiry to Improve Teaching and Learning helps educators use research to guide decision-making and determine the effectiveness of various instructional strategies. The book leads the reader through the action research process using a model of self-regulation, which focuses on task definition, goal setting and planning, enacting research, and adaption.

Our research shows that when students learn how to use talk to reason together, they become better at reasoning on their own. Credit: Neil Mercer. The concept of oracy was coined as recently as , by the researcher Andrew Wilkinson to give the subject of ‘speaking and listening’ more gravitas.

Through our own research and that of others, we know there are some very effective ways of teaching oracy skills, which are already used by some teachers. For example, one established way to make group-work more productive is to ask students to agree on a suitable set of ‘ground rules’ for how they will conduct their discussions.

Action research is an interactive inquiry process that balances problem-solving actions implemented in a collaborative context with data-driven collaborative analysis or research to understand underlying causes enabling future predictions about personal and organizational change.

After six decades of action research development, many methods have evolved that adjust the balance to. - Literacy domino effect – Oracy develops listening, reading and writing skills - Oracy can either highlight or hide the gaps in a student’s literacy proficiency - The more student’s actively take part in speaking activities, the more automatic their use of language becomes.

Oracy Skills Framework - The Oracy Skills Framework provided an appropriate and effective structure to support the design, review and refinement of School 21’s Year 7 oracy curriculum.

It effectively underpinned the development of an assessment tool which supports diagnostic and formative assessment in oracy, and tracking of students' progress. Mathison, in International Encyclopedia of Education (Third Edition), Learning.
