Teaching Speaking and Listening is a fully revised edition of the successful language-teaching programme One Step at a Time, providing new material and advice for teachers and more flexible procedures for use in mainstream schools, pre-schools and individual classrooms.

This book targets the essential spoken language skills crucial for every child's educational development - conversation; listening; narrative; discussion - and provides auditing tools, checklists and guidance to help the non-specialist teacher to build language, literacy and communication skills.

This resource is specially designed to combine with other teaching programmes, making spoken language teaching manageable within existing resources - without specialist training. It provides detailed learning objectives, advice on teaching methods, suggestions for teaching activities, and guidance on literacy links, together with an online training pack. Teachers, teaching assistants, literacy coordinators and SENCOs working in the early years and primary, and anyone working with children of any age with spoken language difficulties will find this resource invaluable.
