Speaking and Listening

This section is focussed on speaking and listening instruction.

You will find information about:

  • teaching practices (e.g., dialogic talk, modelling through think alouds)
  • the literacy focus (e.g. phonological awareness, vocabulary, purposeful listening)
  • in-practice examples of lessons that make connections between practice and a literacy focus.

Given the interrelationship between reading, writing, and speaking and listening, this section of the Literacy Teaching Toolkit builds on and complements material available in other sections of the toolkit.
