Teach Speaking

LiteracyTA's Free Toolkit provides teachers with lessons, activities and curriculum to engage students in academic discussions that promote analytical thinking, synthesis, and essential speaking and listening skills. Our structured activities increase opportunities for students to speak and listen in a classroom, share ideas, support thinking and speak well. These speaking and listening skills help students be successful in middle school, high school, college and the work place. Our FREE toolkit helps teachers teach speaking skills in any classroom.
