Welcome to Short Stories for French by Marité Casey. This website is to help improve reading comprehension and writing skills among students taking French as a foreign or second language.
You will find PDF files consisting of a chapter from a short story created by Marité Casey. Included are a rubric for grading and a plan on how to prepare lessons for the final dialogue along with a writing assignment.
Follow the step-by-step guide provided with each story. These unfinished stories or chapters are divided in three categories: beginner, intermediate and advanced.
Click on the title called “ campingfichu“. This is an advanced level story about teenage campers trekking through the forest of the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia.
When using an overhead projector to explain the reading and rubric, show the students where “le dictionnaire” is located on the blogroll in case they wish to review the reading at home or in the media center. Click the dictionnaire link and demonstrate its use. Make sure to present the link to your technology media specialist in order to unblock the site.
