Ending a lesson with a smile on the students’s face is priceless and this is what I got after doing this activity with them.
Aim: teaching “should” to give advice.
Task: Students in pairs were given the left column of the article where a problem is posed . They were asked to write a sound piece of advice to help this person.
Now , once their advice was read out and properly appraised , I wrote on the blackboard Men shouldn’t write advice columns and then asked students to guess how this headline could relate to the problem they had just read about.
After a juicy discussion , I handed out the right column and we had a healthy laugh!
