Speaking, Listening and the English GCSE
Chris Ledgard presents a discussion on the teaching of speaking and listening in schools and the way it's now assessed in the English GCSE. Can students really be taught to be eloquent speakers, and if so, how?
Taking part are Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers; writer and thinker Tom Chatfield, and Neil Mercer, Professor of Education at the University of Cambridge.
