Oral Language | Tips and Tools workshop (Napier)
Cognition Education is pleased to present our Oral Language workshop: Tips and Tools, hosted by our resident Oral Language expert, Del Costello.
At Cognition, Oral Language is a building block for literacy progression and a foundation for our literacy PLD approach. Our literacy team supports leaders and teachers to build a school-wide literacy capability that is sustainable and equitable. Our approach leverages the diversity of the communities we work with, in order to grow learner’s identity and self-efficacy.
Oral Language supports social-emotional development, cognitive development and is a defining contributor in academic achievement. As educators, we must take the lead in this space and work to build assessable, explicit and effective ways to integrate Oral Language into our context in meaningful ways for our learners.
In this 1.5 hour workshop, we will:
- Unpack the key research around Oral Language development and its impact within a school setting.
- Explore the pedagogy of Oral Language.
- Give an insight into what effective Oral Language practice might look like.
- Share tools to put into practice.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday 12 May 2020 from 3.30 pm to 5 pm at the Totara Conference Room, Kennedy Park Resort, Storkey Street, Napier.
This workshop is not to be missed if you wish to improve Oral Language as a foundation skill across your school and lift student achievement. Let’s get talking!
