FSF4U1 French Independent Reading Program (IRP 2014-15)
Over the next month or so, you will be asked to read, interpret and further develop your love of French literature. It is often a challenge to select a novel that is a perfect fit. Below are a list of resources and handouts that will provide guidance toward an IRP selection, along with tips and strategies to follow when reading your novel. “Take Action while Reading” provides suggestions (tasks to complete) while you read that will better prepare you for your interview day.
