Agreement And Disagreement Reading

If you strongly agree with someone, this simple sentence is appropriate. This is perhaps one of the weakest formulations of English. Normally, people say it when they don`t really have to do something, but don`t see why they should oppose it. Agreements and disagreements usually relate to your personal thoughts and feelings about something. Phrases like “I think” or “in my opinion” clearly show that you have an opinion and not a fact. These lines from Katy Perry`s song “Agree to Disagree” show that just because you don`t agree with someone doesn`t mean you can`t have a friendly, romantic or even professional relationship. In fact, agreements and disagreements are part of any relationship. This phrase is used if you partially agree with certain points, but may not fully agree. Differences in thought and opinion do not need to influence your relationship with people. This is especially important in academic spaces and offices. Remember, your disagreement or approval is with opinion, thought or idea.

This indicates a very strong consensus. Normally, people don`t take that sentence to the letter (word for word) and don`t really repeat what they just said. This phrase is generally used as a strong, formal and very polite expression for disagreements. Once your students have unmasked the simple phrases for concordance and disagreement, you put them to the next step. Here is an exhaustive list of phrases of agreement and disagreement. Let students read the items in the list and decide how strong the agreement or disagreement is in each sentence. Let students discuss the most appropriate phrases to agree or disagree with an employer, friend, spouse or parent. Which are most likely to be used? Are there any who would never use them? That is another way of saying that you are completely in agreement with someone. Filling out consistent/divergent statements determines the purpose of the reading. By reflecting on what they want to study, students explore prejudices about subjects and subjects, then reflect on both the text and their initial thinking after reading the text.
