Do As I Say is a photocopiable collection of three kinds of sequential activities; operations (manipulating equipment), procedures (predictable series of steps) and rituals (predictable conversational language used to talk about these activities). Students acquire vocabulary and grammatical features, which are specifically outlined in the teaching notes in the back of the book, through learning by doing. This book epitomizes "active learning"!
