Welcome to the new Oral Language Development website

Primary tabs

Our work with teachers over the past several years has highlighted the need to address both the quality and frequency of student talk in classrooms. Providing all students with equitable access to oral language development is critical to closing the opportunity gap.  The emphasis that the Common Core State Standards has placed on oral language has provided us with a platform to take the work to a broader audience.  The New Teacher Center wishes to express its appreciation for the vital support it has received from the Hewlett Foundation for this important project.
