Research is important to us at Tell Us All; we use it to develop and evaluate what we do. Here is a guide to some of the research that has informed our practice.
Social Exclusion and Literacy
Social exclusion is a complex problem that creates barriers to education, employment and society. Its various causes include low-incomes, discrimination and high crime. Families who experience social exclusion are likely to suffer impaired communication skills and those who experience speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) are at risk of social disadvantage (ICAN, 2009).
Oracy: speaking well and why it matters
Oracy is about effective verbal communication. It baffles us at Tell Us All that oracy doesn't have a higher profile in education and it is a problem we aim to solve.
We aim to work with other great organisations who are also working hard to raise the profile of spoken language in our schools. Click below to read some of their research.
Storytelling in Education
Storytelling is arguably the oldest form of education. So why is it so absent in our current education system?
We believe that all it takes to convince someone of the endless benefits of storytellin is to put it in front of them. But for those time when that's not visable, we often refer back to the research and ideas found by clicking the button below.
