Product Description
This short story, written by Giovanni Boccacchio (1313-1375), the great medieval Italian writer, is delightful in how it depicts courtly manners and has a clever irony infused in its plot. It is often paired with O'Henry's "The Gift of the Magi" and Maupassant's "The Necklace." Boccacchio was friends with Petrarch and influenced Chaucer. This version is translated by Mark Musa and Peter Bondanella, professors and scholars of Italian Literature from Indiana University.

I found the story here: https://americanliterature.com/author/giovanni-boccaccio/short-story/federigos-falcon and turned it into a script (to boost student engagement and class discussion). I added discussion questions and a vocab activity and vocab quiz. The preview has an intro page and one of the four pages of the story; the final page of the story includes the discussion questions. One of the two pages of the vocabulary activities is also in the preview.
