Abstract: The object of this teaching scenario is the poem Supplication by Cavafy, which belongs to the early period of the poet’s writing (written in 1896; published in 1898). The four-part structure of the scenario is comprised of units on its identity, its development, the assessment by the pupils via the worksheets, and bibliographical references. The pupils are called upon to approach the poem through different parameters, such as Cavafy’s versification, the linguistic peculiarity of Cavafic poetry, tragic irony, the inevitability of fate, and religious faith. At the same time, they are encouraged to co-operate with each other and to create multimedia texts (presentations, texts with images) at the stage of worksheet elaboration in the computer lab, which they then present and discuss in class. The formation of groups by the students, the assignment of specific small tasks, the presentation of the results in class, as well as the utilisation of IT contribute to the substantial approach of the subject.
