Oral language is widely recognised as an essential foundation for successful school learning. However, until recently, the acquisition of oral language skills has been largely overshadowed by reading, writing, spelling and numeracy, and has not been considered a key component of school curricula. In Teaching Oral Language Dr John Munro redresses this imbalance through the delivery of his step-by-step model, ICPALER. The Ideas-Conventions-Purposes-Ability to learn-Expression and Reception framework describes the various aspects of oral language from a classroom perspective, and demonstrates how teachers can best guide students to become effective communicators and language users.
