I wrote this story for a reading comprehension test for my French 4 class. It is the story of a man who goes hiking in the moutains and has an accident so it covers imperfect and passÃ© composÃ©, and includes vocabulary of camping & aches and pains. It ends with a prompt for a writing exercise : "what do you suggest I do ?" so that students can use the text and create a response in writing. This is a great assignment for an exam or a quaterly assessment.
