Unit 8 (Summary / Review of Verb Forms: Imperative vs. Present Continuous vs. Simple Present: “The Job Interview”) of the Original Scenario, Volume One: English Grammar in Context, pages 82-86
Who It’s For: (Teachers & Helpers of) Beginning to Intermediate Language Learners
Why It’s Useful: It’s a vintage black-and-white compression of uses, forms, patterns, and practice of most common incarnations of present verb forms.
What You’ll Do:
 The page 82 Boxed Chart tells English speakers/writers to “use the imperative for directions and orders; the present continuous, for action now; and the simple present, for general time and with non-action verbs. Then come boxes with elements of Affirmative Statements, Negative Statements, Yes / No Questions, and Short Answers. Use these to compare the elements and construction of kinds of present-time sentences.
 On pages 83-86, do and check Exercises 1a-1b. These will reinforce verb (form) choice. In 1c, you / your students will be “Putting It Together” by writing, hearing, and stating directions in an activity, what you see others doing, and steps in daily work tasks.
