10 minutes into skills practice:
Within the first 10 minutes of skills practice, I was able to complete a reading unit on compass learning. The unit was based around the fact that a simple word choice/sentence structure can make a big difference in the story you are writing. It also allowed me to show how synonyms can make a difference for a sentence and what you are trying to say.

10 more minutes into skills practice:
For the next 10 minutes, I learned how readers and listeners like to relate to what the writer/speaker is saying. How the word choice they use, can make all the difference to the person reading/ listening to what they have to say. Also establishing credibility can make a big difference as well (a.k.a telling personal stories).
