Teaching “should”: Why men shouldn’t write advice columns.

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!
