Oracy across the curriculum

We’ve gathered together lots of our favourite resources to help improve oracy in your classroom. We have different formats, lesson plans, and case studies of schools across the UK.

We also have resources for building discrete oracy skills and ideas for improving oracy in a co-curricular setting

Oracy Videos

Full debates can be a great way to teach the debating format and slowly build your students’ confidence, or you can target their listening skills by getting them to watch and judge one of the debates.
