Talk It Up! provides students with speaking opportunities by presenting stimulating and thought provoking springboards for discussion.The activities in the book assume that children will conduct the bulk of their discussions in small groups.
Some children take longer to formulate their own ideas and are intimidated by speaking in front of the whole class. Other children are content to sit back and listen (or do something else!) and not take a viewpoint, whilst others continually dominate. Each section provides different oral language activities including scenario studies, discussion prompts, debate topics and role plays.
