Hall Pass: Modal for Possibility - COULD
This is a funny movie with great scenes. I had a lot of fun watching it. I used this scene to talk about modals for possibility, especially COULD.
I. What are the possible consequences of Mr. Will's buying his twenty-year-old babysitter some beer? What does his conscience tell him about the possible consequences of buying alcohol for a minor? Check the actions you think he believes could happen to him.
( ) 1. He goes into a lot of trouble.
( ) 2. He is arrested by the police.
( ) 3. His action attitude becomes a scandal.
( ) 4. He is fired.
( ) 5. His fiancée is furious at him.
( ) 6. He falls in love with his babysitter.
( ) 7. His babysitter falls in love with him.
II. Now rewrite his fears using modals for possibility
