After learning about receptive skills, I have now learned about productive skills. Productive skills are speaking and writing. These two skills are different from each other in many ways but are both used for communication. Writing is the more difficult skill because it requires a greater degree of accuracy whereas speaking requires a greater degree of fluency because speakers don't usually have time to think and prepare an answer. Chapter 12 talked about the differences between accuracy and fluency and which phase of the lesson should focus on these skills. This lesson was helpful because it provided a number of activities for both speaking and writing lessons. While practicing speaking skills, the teacher can choose between controlled activities, guided activities and creative communication. I think it's a good idea to incorporate all of these activities in the classroom so students can work on both their accuracy and fluency. Lastly for the speaking section, this chapter gave tips and techniques to encourage student interaction and participation and gave guidelines for a free/creative speaking activity. The writing section of this lesson focused on the importance of handwriting, spelling, layout, punctuation and creative writing. The chapter wrapped up with a short section on games in the classroom. I always love reading about different activities and games to use while teaching because I think they are very important in the classroom and get students excited about participating, practicing their English and learning. One point this lesson mentioned that I found interesting was that writing is the most neglected skill in the TEFL world. Ultimately, I do think that focusing on speaking is more important but I think writing should valued too because it is a good skill to have. I hope to be able to include fun writing activities in my future lessons.
