A good boss

I'm sharing a short lesson I used with B2 students. We were talking about work and I decided to take advantage of the oportunity to revise the use of modal verbs for necessity and suggestion. In this lesson students discussed, evaluated and constructed the concept of being a good boss.



Warm up: Classify the following adjectives as positive or negative for a boss. Justify your choice. (Student's answers)

Confident - friendly - sociable - pushy - kind - ambitious - generous - shy - 

I think _____ is positive because...
You have a point but sometimes...
I believe _____ is negative because...
Maybe but sometimes it is goo/bad because...

Activity 1: Understanding a scene.

  3. He is going to remodel is office                                                                       
  4. He will take a 70% of the additional salary                                                    
  5. Nick has a bad reaction                                                                                   

Activity 3: Are the men shown in the video good bosses? Why? (Student's answers)
