Some Aspects of Oracy.
NATE Bulletin, v2 n2 p1-45 Summer 1965
In the lead article of this issue, the editor of the "NATE Bulletin," Andrew Wilkinson, defines "oracy" as "the ability to use the oral skills of speaking and listening," and maintains that instruction in these skills must be incorporated into the curriculum--not as a subject but as an important "condition of learning." Following are five articles by educators and seven abridgements of speeches given at the 1965 conference of the National Association for the Teaching of English which deal with English as spoken in various situations; linguistic concepts concerning the various levels of speech; the number and caliber of English teachers in Britain; teaching oracy in primary schools, secondary schools, and colleges; and a syllabus for a course in speech and drama. Authors of speeches and ar"icles are Reg Prentice, Muriel Crosby, Boris Ford, Charles Parker, Michael Halliday, Basil Bernstein, James Britton, Vincent Thompson, Yvonne Redman, John Dalton, Brian Stone, and A. A. Jones. (JS)
