Case Study - Death of the Rock Star
Work in groups of 5 (maybe 6).This is a case study the ultimate goal of which is to find the criminal and reconstruct the possible murder scenes and scenarios. In fact, there is no single right answer for the case, there can be a variety - from suicide to murder and assassination. Students act as detectives. How you proceed: print copies of the first page for each student - this is the story, vocabulary and tasks. They read the introduction and then study vocabulary. After that, you tell them to read the article and make first assumptions. The next step - you give out the letters (only!) and ask the students to read and tell their group what the letter is about and from who (tell - not read!). Collectively they try to identify the personalities of those who adress the letters. Next step - new assumptions and the first versions of the crime. Finally - there is new evidence! And at this point you hand out the diary pages which give your students more food for thought plus new ideas. In the end, discuss what versions people in each group have. Good luck!
