Oracy – Emerging Narrative
12 April 2017: posted by BigChange
At Big Change we prioritise areas where we can make the biggest difference. Having supported a number of projects spanning a number of different areas we have realized that to maximize our impact we are better placed to focus deeper support on a fewer number of outcome areas .
Oracy and supporting the next generation to find their voice is one of these focus areas – it is an area we have supported since 2014 through our partnership with Voice 21.
Oracy refers to talking well, and learning well through talk, whether in education or in life. Talking well involves being a confident, sensitive and effective communicator. Learning well through talk means growing personally, academically, and socially through verbal interactions with other people.
Have a read of our Oracy – Emerging Narrative to find out more about our thinking on the subject and watch this space for for more information about the projects we are supporting.
