Oracy is the ability to articulate ideas, develop understanding and engage with others through spoken language. In school, Oracy is a powerful tool for learning; by teaching students to become more effective speakers and listeners we empower them to better understand themselves, each other, and the world around them.
At Madani, Oracy is a key teaching and learning tool to support students to access the knowledge and skills required to be able to progress in each subject. We teach students to learn through talk and to learn to talk to support their progress towards direct outcomes like GCSEs but also more widely so that they are prepared for life beyond school.
