  • 2. Class • • • • English course class; Teenagers; Intermediate level; From sixteen to twenty students;
  • 3. Linguistic items to be focused • Usage of the modal verbs “can” and “could”; • Indirect speech
  • 4. Examples • The examples would come from comic strips, so that the topic would be lighter to be presented and discussed. • Students could also bring, for another class, examples from different species, such as texts, songs or sitcoms.
  • 5. Comic Strips
  • 6. Class: step 1 - input • The class would be divided in groups of four; • Each group would get some (2 to 4) comic strips; • They would look up new words and read the comic strips to their group partners.
  • 7. Class: step 2 - output • Each one of the group should write a report about what happened in a chosen comic strip. This way, they would practice indirect speech. • One of the written reports should be chosen to be told to the class by one of the members of each group.
  • 8. Class: step 3 - Language analysis •     After students report, the teacher would ask him/her and the class about the situation. Was it a conversation between two friends or between mother and son? Is it formal or informal? Were the characters in the comic strip being polite? Were they talking about abilities and skills?
  • 9. Class: step 3 - Language analysis • Ask students to find and underline the modals “can” and “could”; • Sentences where they appeared should be written on the board and analyzed: which differences between the usage of both verbs could the students notice?
  • 10. Class: step 3 - Language analysis • Ask students to find out the function of the modals: offer, request, permission, possibility. Write the functions on each strip. • Lead students to see the pattern of modal verbs by asking questions: • What comes after modal verbs in the sentences? • What is the form of the verbs after modals?
  • 11. Class: step 4 • After the explanations, students should write one sentence for each function found and explain their choice for “can” or “could”.
  • 12. Language analysis • Language analysis would be done again after the production activity so that students would get a chance to check the usage: the meaning and the form.
