This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
The topic of unit 10 focuses on teaching and explaining the basic receptive skills of reading and listening. The lesson briefly goes into how people generally read and listen using predictive skills, scanning for specific information, skimming for general ideas, looking for detailed information, and deducing meaning from context. The unit also provides tips for helping to effectively teach language as well as provides an example of a patchwork lesson.
I found this unit to be very interesting yet also reassuring. Many of the points that were mentioned in the unit were items that I already knew from my own experiences when dealing with my junior high school students. I agree with many of the points expressed in this unit, especially the point about creating interest. I find that when teachers bring in fun pop culture or add music bands or cartoon characters into their explanations and examples, the students are more likely to listen.
