Procedure (24-45 minutes)
I'll draw a chart on the white board, and will ask the student to come to the WB or to stay where they are and tell me what they think about : Must, have/has to, should and can. Which one is representing the highest necessity then the lesser and so on, till we rich the choice point.
I'll hand out the exercise and tell them to fill in the gaps with must or should, in order to complete the explanation. They also can use the table that is provided with the hand out.
I'll give the students a hand out, with a table similar to the one in exercise 1. They have to fill it with what they think is important and what is not as well as what they think is a necessity and what is not. They have to use the modal verbs must and should.
I'll use the white board to explain the 9 modal verbs: can, could, may, might , must, shall, should, will and would. for example they don't take the third person (S). While have to and need to, do! Also we can give advice using should /shouldn't. And must/mustn't are used to give a strong and authoritative advice.
I'll give the the head line and ask them their opinion, they need to discuses it in pairs. Then they will do the exercise that talking about the advantages and dis advantages of working from home. And by the end they will listen to a CD track and check their answers.
There will be two exercises in which the first one they need to it in pairs. The other one they need to split in to groups then one of them will represent the whole group. He/she need to get the answers right before the other team member.
