Dear colleagues, I am considering the option of teaching 'L'Etranger' Camus, 'Le Silence de la Mer' Vercors, or 'Boule de Suif et autres contes de guerre' Maupassant, as an introduction to literature to A2 students following the WJEC syllabus. I am only starting to look into my options, but having taught A2 for a year and a half, getting by with teaching films, I am aware of the difficulties I might face with getting students reading depending on the calibre of students that September may bring. So far, I think that 'L'Etranger' is more accessible from the point of view of the standard of French to be read, ties in with 'La Haine' on the topic of racism, as my students will be studying 'La Haine'. 'Le Silence de la Mer' is quite short, which is encouraging for students, and could provide with an interesting variety of topics linked with WW2. I like 'Boule de Suif' but the language is more difficult. If you have taught any of these books to A2 students, or if you have taught any of the other books on the WJEC syllabus with success, please let me know of your opinions and experience. Thank you.
