Oral language skills enables students to communicate effectively. There are two parts to Oral Language:
1.Expressive Language (Speaking) is the use of words and non verbals to share a message with others
2.Receptive Language (Listening) is understanding what has been expressed by others.
As students progress through school they need to develop more sophisticated Speaking and Listening skills to reach academic benchmarks. Oral Language Workshops develop these effective Speaking and Listening skills through active discussions, questioning, and complex thinking games and activities.
Oral Language Workshops will have no more than six students.
