    Essential processing – I think learning how to paraphrase requires the most processing as it involves being able to do lots of different things at the same time and you have to actually do it in your head. The Harvard Referencing system also involves lots of separate bits but it follows rules which can be remembered / checked and are always the same. Paraphrasing involves using all your understanding of the language, as well as understanding the material you are paraphrasing.

    Generative processing – my understanding of this is that it corresponds to when ask learners to actually do something (rather than just reading / listening). Is that right? So perhaps the wordwall activities where we were building passive sentences ourselves would be an example of this?
