School Talkabouts focus on class and individual awareness of subjects. They need one facilitator, one subject, a speaking space and a lively communication approach. All you need to suppy is the location and the group.
During a School Talkabout, many communication skills may surface from mime to drawing, speech to gesture.
In preparation, have some photographs, notes, links, books, articles and any other useful items that may come in handy to prompt thoughts and discussion.
The aim of a School Talkabout is to reveal the cross-subject awareness of your pupils and to promote each class member to enjoy matching their wider understandings with the subject of the talkabout.
When discussing environmental topics like water, earth, air and outer space, it is useful to use the outdoor as a speaking space during a walkabout.
As you pick the subject your class is to discuss, contact us about your specific needs.
