Have students create a T-Chart storyboard in which they have two columns—one to present a problem and the other to present a solution using the imperative. Students should brainstorm realistic scenarios and the advice someone would likely give them. In the model storyboard, the first example is a daughter suddenly remembering that she has a difficult test the next day. In the solution column, her mom advises her to study by using the imperative form. Have students design at least five of their own scenarios, ideally targeting different types of verbs (-ar, -er, -ir, and boot verbs).
