This subject uses contemporary research in oral language acquisition to develop frameworks that primary school educators can use to describe, monitor and teach speaking and listening knowledge and skills. The frameworks provide educators with the capacity to identify the complexity of the ideas communicated, the language conventions used, the knowledge of the purposes of communicating to achieve social goals and the ability to learn oral language. It will examine procedures for monitoring oral language development and use and analyse various assessment and diagnostic tools. It will also examine pedagogy associated with oral language education and a range of intervention strategies in speaking and listening. The links between oral language knowledge and skills and academic success in literacy and numeracy will be explored throughout the subject.
