an old sock the other one contains chocolates.

I gave you that kind of activity because our topic

During reading:

The teacher will call a student to read the


Archie, kindly read the first paragraph.

(Archie will read the first paragraph)
In the very old time, a half barbaric king, who was
also half-civilized, because of the influence of his distant
Latin neighbors, conceived a way of exercising justice on
offenders against his rule. He placed his suspect in a
Roman-like arena and had him choose to open one of
either of two doors that would open into the arena.
Behind one of the identical doors lurked a ferocious tiger
that would leap out and devour the accused: behind the
door awaited a lovely maid who would, if her door was the
one opened, come forth and be married at once to the
opener. (it mattered not that the man may be married or
otherwise committed, for the whimsical king would have
justice.) the fate was to be decided by chance alone, and
no one who knew the placement behind the doors was
allowed to inform him which to elect.
Thank you, Archie.

The first paragraph describes the king who is half

barbaric and half civilized. He created an arena for the
criminals. It is a court which the suspect placed and will
choose one of the two doors as a punishment. The one
door contains a hungry tiger that will eat the courtier. The
other door contains the lady which will be married the
opener once it will open. For those who knows the secret
of the door are not allowed to inform the courtier.

Kindly read the next paragraph, Juggy. (Juggy will read the next paragraph)
All of this was popular among the audience, and
even their thinking members could not deny that it was a
fair test. The public experienced pleasing suspense and an
immediate resolution. Best of all, everyone knew that the
accused person chose his own ending.
Thank you, Juggy
The people think that it was a fair test for the criminals
because they are the one who holds their fate. The
punishment is depending on their choices.

kindly read the 3rd paragraph, Betty.

(Betty will read the 3rd paragraph)
Now it happened that a handsome young courtier
dared to love the King’s daughter, who was lovely and
very dear to her father. The man, however, though of the
court, was of low station; his temerity was therefore an
offense against decorum and the King. Such a thing had
never happened in the kingdom before. The young lover
had to put in the arena to choose a door, a lady or a tiger.
However, the princess loved the young man; clearly and
openly that was the case. She did not want to lose him to
a ravenous tiger, but at the same time, could she bear to
lose him to another woman?
Thank you, Betty.

The courtier or the man dare to love the princess, the

King’s daughter. The king was become mad when he knew
the relationship of his daughter and the courtier. So he
put the young lover to the arena to choose a door that
contains the lady or the tiger. The princess loved the
young man. She did not want to lose him to a tiger nor to
another woman.

Veronica, kindly read the 4th paragraph.

(Veronica will read the 4th paragraph)
The King search the kingdom for the most savage
tigers. He also searched for the most beautiful maiden in
all his land. No matter which door the young man
selected, he would have the best that could be offered.
The public could hardly wait, and as for the king, he

the young man would be disposed of.

The king is determined to disposed the young man, so he

are, he will surely vanish in the life of his daughter.

They must enter an arena and pick a door; the door may
lead to their freedom or to a terrible death.

imprisons the courtier. His punishment is to determine his
own fate
Kindly describe the courtier or the young man, Grace.

Wonderful, Grace.
