To provide clarification and practice of Modal
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a Conversation
Procedure (27-35 minutes)
I will use flash cards to conduct the warmer session. I will write some general statements on the flashcards. I will write some statements using the modals that will express certainty, possibility, and impossibility. I will paste the flashcards on the whiteboard such a way that will contrast the meaning. I will ask the students, in general, to find out words that change the meaning. They will say the words must/ might/ can't/ could be. Then I will write on the board the words: Certain possible Impossible I will ask students to be in pairs and every pair should write one sentence using the modals must/ might/ can't/ couldn't be.
I will utter two sentences In the first sentence I will use emphatic stress with a modal to express more certaintity In the second sentence I wil emphatic stress to express less certaintity I will ask the students if they find any differences between the two sentences. Then I will ask them to read the text and make the modalic sentences more ceratin and less certain. ( Individual task). I will help them practice emphatic stress through repetition drill.
I will make a slide presentation to show how we use modals like must to express certainty or possibility, can't /couldn't to uncertainty or impossibility and could/may/might to less possibility. The cues can be written on cards or spoken. Then I will provide the students with cues and ask the individual students to change the expression according to the clue provided with. I go out.( Point to a certain) I must go out. Now the students will get into groups and I will distribute the handouts to do the exercise 2.a.
I will read the text from the book. The SS will listen to me. I will then give them the handouts. The SS will get into groups and discuss the four choices ( based on the text) and decide what to do. When they will have finished the task, one group will share the idea with the other group( Jigsaw activity).
I will monitor the activities of the group and collect the tasks. I will see if there are any mistakes and write those on the whiteboard. The students who know the correct answers will come to board and write the correct answers.
