    "activate" teaching ideas for modal verbs

    I am new to this and also old. I can hardly remember yesterday let alone my public school education 50 years ago, which btw was very good.

    I am doing lesson 12 for a TESOL certificate and they want 12 different teaching ideas for modal verbs. Can someone help me? Thanks

    How many do you have so far and what are they?
    I can offer you one:
    List the modal verbs, then explain their primary meanings. Once you've done that, explain their other meanings and usages.
    I know it's not very sophisticated, but it should count for 1.
