In this Intermediate ESL lesson plan, students learn to use modal verbs “may”, “might”, “can’t” and “must”. They also acquire new vocabulary related to politics.
We kick off with a brief discussion on Machiavelli’s political theory.
Students watch a video titled “POLITICAL THEORY – Niccolò Machiavelli” and discuss the questions that follow.
This section explains the use of modal verbs “may”, “might”, “can’t” and “must”, and provides useful examples.
In this section, the use of modal verbs is exemplified and practiced. This is accomplished through gap-filling and sentence rewriting exercises.
Students read a thought-provoking text on Machiavelli’s political theory and discuss their thoughts.
Pick a Card
Finally, the lesson wraps up with a pick-a-card exercise. Students are asked to choose the odd one out and explain why it doesn’t belong.
