Family Issues

Age: Teens & Adults
Focus: Reflection and Discussion / Modals of Speculation

The activity below has been designed for the song "FAMILY PORTRAIT" by Pink. It's suitable for a group of older teens or an adult group. First, students speculate about what the singer was like as a child  and her family based on a picture. Students are supposed to use modals of speculation (I think she may have been rebellious), although they might use Would/Used To (I think she used to be funny and talkative) or Simple Past (I think she used bad language). After they discuss, they will listen to the song and find in the lyrics information that describes her family and how she feels. In the end, students say what they think they would do in her shoes.
