Another reading activity for mixed ability groups. I got a similar story in an email some time ago. As it struck me hard, I decided to share this great story with my Ss. I abridged it, slightly modified to suit different Ss needs/tastes and added some exercises to practise the Past Simple tense.
In the uploaded Ws you can find the same text with 6 modifications. Additionally each modification comes in two versions: Version A-for stronger/quicker Ss in the group and Version B for weaker/slower ones.
Another idea: You can hand out all copies (altogether there are 12 of them)
The key is included.
A story with a moral 1a cares for coffee drinkers.
