Go! Talk: The Spoken Language Skills Toolkit
Do some of your students struggle to deliver presentations, speeches, debates and interviews with confidence and clarity? Go! Talk is a collection of flexible and practical activities to encourage confident spoken language skills for Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. Each practical activity can stand alone as one lesson, part of a lesson or students can work through each stage independently at their own level. Go! Talk is the complete package to support English and Drama classes and is also brilliant for debate clubs, Young Enterprise and career development.
An excellent resource that fills a huge gap in the educational market. J Sallabank, English Teacher & Independent ReviewerActivities focus on:
- Overcoming nerves
- Building successful, engaging speeches and presentations with an awareness of audience
- Using body language and intonation for effective communication
- Developing successful debating skills
- The importance of first impressions
- Interview techniques
Emphasis has been placed on peer assessments and practical activities to ensure that students have the maximum practice in each skill. Each activity needs very little preparation and is versatile and flexible in terms of the environment and context in which it might be used.
In association with Your Voice Limited, the pack also comes with nine professionally produced videos and voice-over clips which can take you step by step through the Go! Talk toolkit or can be shown to students directly. The videos feature Jane Shepherd-Miller, director of Your Voice Limited and a specialist in spoken language skills.
