This resource examines some great real-life orators from history through film, such as Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Muhammed Ali and Lord Mansfield. It has clear links to the English curriculum for 11 to 14 year olds and the new GCSE English Language, where the effects of language can be considered, as well as the importance of delivery, gesture and tone. This resource also has cross-curricular relevance to drama, history and PSHE.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
