There are so many classroom aids and equipment you can use to make the most out of your lessons. For an example using a white board can be very beneficial to students but first you should start with a clean board. Make the white board visually appealing and different topics should be in different colors. Another good classroom tool is visual aids. Visual aids can help bring the outside world to the classroom.This unit has taught me the difference between receptive and productive skills. Also the importance of how to teach each skill so students have a better understanding. Receptive skills include reading and listening, they are both important and you need one in order to have the other. Productive skills include writing and speaking and the different techniques for each have helped me tremendously in my classes.
