6. “Reflexes” compound into action skills.

[read about Fischer's dynamic skill theory here: http://fab-efl.com/page11/page12/index.html

The basis of all learning/understanding is skill development. But what are skills? Skills are compounded reflex sets. A simple twitching reflex can and does compound into more complex, coordinated movement. These latter compound into more complex skills such as swatting a fly, and drawing with crayons. Language learning, as a skill, also goes through the same processes of development. It begins with reflexes such as sound recognition, and builds into word recognition, and then sentence recognition.

Q. Identify a set of reflexes that you may have processed into action skills. Discuss your thoughts on the trip you made from reflexes to actions.
