This is the online versionof the modal verbs reading text worksheet. Decide if the statements are true or false according to the reading text.
Maggie: Hi Tom, have you finished your homework?
Tom: Oh hi Maggie. No, I haven’t.
Maggie: The deadline is tomorrow you know so you have to submit it tomorrow.
Tom: I can’t make it. I haven’t even started it yet. Can we hand it in next week?
Maggie: I don’t know. You’ll have to ask Mrs. Robinson about that. I think you must finish it by tomorrow. She probably won’t accept projects after tomorrow.
Tom: I’ve had so many other things to do. I couldn’t even start it. I don’t know what to do.
Maggie: Don’t worry. I’ll help you. It’s not very difficult. I finished it in one day.
Tom: Really? Great!
Maggie: First, you should read the article that Mrs. Robinson gave us. It’s about the Mohican Civilization. Then, you have to design a poster for a play about them – the Mohicans – for the theatre.
Tom: Yeah I know but it looks a bit difficult…
Maggie: Not at all. You don’t have to make the poster from scratch and it doesn’t have to be a work of art. There are lots of templates on the internet. You can just use one of those designs to make your own poster.
Tom: Well, I think I can do it. What title shall I use? Can you help me?
Maggie: Yeah, I can give you some suggestions but you mustn’t use the same title as anyone else in our class. You have to create your own title.
Tom: Okay, I can come up with something I guess.
Tom: Yeah, I’ve got to go now and make a start on it. I’ll follow the project guidelines like you said. Thanks, Maggie.
Maggie: No problem. Good luck!
