True story of 92 yr old woman who taught robber a lesson!

Here is a great story which you could use for your classes. It is a story about a 92 year old woman called Pauline Jakoby who refuses to give money to a robber and instead tells him about Jesus. Here is the script ( pauline-jakoby.doc) and adapt for your own purposes (ie. gap-filling).

The video has great vocabulary for a lesson on crime and punishment OR it contains some interesting tenses including present perfect continuous. It would also be a good comprehension test for lower levels to see if they pick up the gist of a story.

here is the video:

    What an undescribably amazing story, Dave!
    Here’s where the rubber meets the road!

    Very useful piece of authentic ELT material! Thanks!

    Also, this is evidence that ideas (faith) have consequences. Pauline gave the man a wonderful example of God’s grace by eventually giving him the $10 (which he obviously didn’t deserve)!
