Unit eleven discusses receptive skills, reading and listening. Each one is equally important. I particularly liked the sample patchwork ESA example in this unit (as well as on this quiz) as it gave me ideas as to how to achieve a task and complete a lesson plan. I do not learn well by reading, but this lesson showed me that reading is still necessary to properly teach students.In this unit I learned about the pro and cons of different teaching methodologies, some of which have influenced the ESA method. I also learned about the ESA method and how to structure a class using different models (straight arrow, boomerang etc.) depending on the level of the class. I liked that there were a lot of examples given for different activities to use during class.
