I was reminded of the difference between skimming(reading quickly for gist) and scanning (skipping over parts to find the information I am really looking for). I learned the difference between authentic texts and non-authentic texts. Authentic texts are not created for a language learner in mind but are useful in that they will expose students to texts that will give them confidence in their skills. Non-authentic texts will contain language more-suited to the students' current abilities. It was also useful to learn that the receptive skills are listening and reading whereas productive skills are speaking and writing.
