Monsters University: Modal for Advice - Should (not), Ought (not) to


This is one of my favorite animated features. I love the characters and the plot. It is incredibly funny. This segment shows a stereotyped librarian and the way she acts when somebody disturbs her. I used this scene to have students use should (ought to) in a contextualized way. I think this scene is hilarious.

I. Talk to a partner:
What are the characteristics of a librarian? Make a list of the qualities one must/mustn't have in order to be a good librarian.

II. What should a librarian do in these situations:

1. I f someone is walking quietly in the library, trying not to make any loud noise.

2. If someone makes a little noise in the library.

3. If someone is very noisy in the library.

4. If someone steals a book from the library.

__________________________

5. If someone makes a mess in the library.

__________________________

6. If someone is talking to a group of people in the library.

III. Watch the segment and write two sentences what the Monsters' University librarian library should do and two other sentences saying what she shouldn't do, according to the segment.
