Procedure (33-50 minutes)
Good morning everyone! How are you today? Address the class that their going to learn about grammar for today. And were going to learn about modal verbs. Modal verbs are auxiliary verbs for things that we must do, can do and can't do. Give me four modal verbs. Write the first letter of each. Write must, need to, have to and can on the WB and elicit the negative form of each one from the students. ask students to give you examples of all of the modal verbs. Then use a timeline to clarify what comes from first to last. Which is must/have to then need to, can, don't have to, then mustn't/can't.
I hand out an activity to the class with eight different questions about the modal verbs. I'll let them work individually first, then in groups and then as a whole class. 1. You MUSTN'T smoke in class. 2. You DON'T HAVE TO wear a tie to work. 3.You CAN drink raki at a bar. 4.You MUSTN'T drink raki at the mosque 5.I MUST attend class everyday. 6.You CAN'T drive your car at 200 KM ph. 7.I MUST stop at the red light. 8. Children MUST do their homework. Get the students attention, and then check the answers with the whole class. Use CCQs to check their understanding. 1. Will you get in trouble if you smoke in class? yes Am I allowed to smoke in class? no 2. Do I have to wear a tie to work? no Will I loose my job If I don't wear a tie to work? no 3.
