Oracy and Visualisers – Powerful Classroom Catalysts

This project has grown from our values; we believe that young people continuing in education is the key to their empowerment. We want to find ways that practitioners can better develop students’ literacy skills. Moreover, we want lessons to be enjoyable – instilling confidence and skills.

Oracy is the capacity to express oneself in and understand speech; it is powerful. It is the pathway to independence, social mobility and a voice in the political arena. Its power and influence extends beyond the classroom and grades.
