Procedure (38-45 minutes)
I will show them a picture of a man and tell them his name is Mr. Lazy. Then I will put them in pairs and they will discuss what his problem is and what he can do to feel better?. I will elicit the problem and try to get advice from the students.
I will give them a matching HO for the health problems . ICQs: Are you going to match the problems with the pictures? Yes! FB: Answer key (slide show), I will do some drilling.
I will ask them to work in pairs and find a solution for each problem. Monitor and check Ss. Fb: Elicit the solutions.
I will show Ss 4 sentences in the context of health problems and let them to work in pairs, discuss the differences for must, should, shouldn't and ought to. which one is stronger? CCQs: You should stay in bed./ You ought to stay in bed. Is it a good idea for me? Yes! Do I have another choice whether stay in bed or not? Yes! You shouldn’t stay in bed. Is it a bad idea to stay in bed? Yes! You must stay in bed. Is it necessary? Yes! Draw a cline to show the difference between should and must. Which one is stronger? Must stronger should=ought to should Then, drill for the pronunciation.
I will give them a HO which includes advice for people who can't sleep. Ss will rewrite the sentences using should, shouldn't, must and ought to. FB: peer-check, Ss will write them and I will do error-correction on the board.
I will give each student a problem and they will tell their problems to each other and give advice. They have to speak at least 5 people and get 5 advice. At the end, they will decide which advice is the best for their problem.
Depending on time, I will separate them into groups and let them to tell their decisions to others. FB: if necessary error- correction on the board.
