I am not in the habit of advertising on my blog, however I had to share this book. I have just completed reading this new publication written by Jannie van Hees. Anyone looking for an understandable resource that outlilnes why Oral Language instruction is important need go no further than this book.
Jannie not only outlines why it is important to focus on Oral Language but also explains clearly how to go about it. Examples of real teachers and children in real classrooms are dotted throughout the book and there are lots of practical examples you could start off with in your classroom.
Think about the question, "who does all the talking in your classroom?"
This resource is available from NZCER.
