III. Work in groups

Students are divided into 3 groups

Each group gets the text. The task is to predict the end of the story.

Group 1

This is about a very rich man who got angry when he discovered a portrait of Shakespeare in the foyer of the theatre which was built in honour of himself. He wondered why it was not his own portrait in the theatre. . . because Shakespeare "had done nothing to help Colorado!"

Group 2

This is about an unusual performance of "Hamlet" when the actor in the title role was taken ill and an understudy had to go on. The understudy was so nervous and his performance was so bad that on the second night the director asked for the play to go on without the main character of Hamlet. Many of the audience said. . . that this version of the play was better.

Group 3

This is about a famous actor, John Barrymore, whose performance of Hamlet was disturbed one afternoon by a then famous film star who talked loudly all the

time to her friends. When he took his curtain call,. . . Barrymore publicly thanked the film star for "co-starring" with him.

The students work in groups, put down the predictions of the stories and read them aloud.
