The TPRS novel, Pauvre Anne, is a great one to use in French 1. But it is also good for French 2 students (who didn't read it previously) to read independently.
I have my French 1 students read different novels each year, and I use novels they didn't read as independent reading when they read French 2. It gives them more practice reading, which research shows is the most effective way to learn a language.
This unit has four parts. The main file has teaching notes along with daily assignments for the students to read on their own. Each assignment is 2-3 pages long and has some simple questions in French that the student should answer. This can, of course, be used as a 2x per week assignment or 3x per week assignment as you like.
The second part is a file of 1/2 page quizzes over the material read. The quizzes vary from T/F, answer in French, answer in English and vocabulary. There are keys to all the quizzes.
The third file is three teaching pictures to use: the French Fries, in a paper cone, (invented in Belgium), Belgian waffles, and the "bise" (air kiss), which figure significantly in the story.
The fourth file is an and-of-book quiz and key, and a page to add to your semester exam and key.
This is not meant as a full lesson to take up a full class period. It is meant as supplemental reading assignments to add to your current French 2 curriculum. If used as DAILY assignments, it would last 16-18 days, if used as occasional or 2x per week assignments, it would last longer.
There are 32 pages total.
