According to National Institute for Literacy, oral language development provides “a critical foundation for reading, writing and spelling” and is in fact the "engine of learning and thinking.” Presenters from School Literacy and Culture’s mentoring team will share practical strategies for extending everyday conversations with children and show how quality teacher/child interactions promote speaking and listening skills, vocabulary development, and higher level thinking.
