Phil McDermott’s Oracy to Writing Process for Schools, uses his video stories together with the Oracy to Writing lesson plans and exercises to help stimulate children’s imaginations, and to encourage in them, a hunger and eagerness for writing, reading and telling stories. The Process has already been highly successful in helping to raise the writing levels, confidence and self esteem of thousands of children in the UK. His new Process for the home will help to develop and strengthen the link between home and school.

Phil has over 18 years experience of working in schools teaching drama, telling stories and training staff. He has a great deal of experience on the effective use of Oracy as a teaching tool. His work with children includes personal development through Oracy,  writing and drama.  Critical thinking, creative problem solving and independent learning are also key features in his approach.

The Process benefits children at all levels of ability, from the reluctant writer to the high achiever. It is particularly effective in helping to increase boys’ writing standards, and is very successful in helping to raise the confidence and literacy levels of EAL and SEN children.
