Hello!
Has anyone read the story "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant?
If you had, can you give me some examples of a pre-reading, while-reading and post reading activity which I could do with my students in the class? ( students - 18 year olds, learning english as a foreign language)
Thank you

  3. Pre-reading - find out who de Maupassant is and what kind of stories he writes.

    Talk about what kind of story they might write with that kind of title, and have them write a one paragraph plot idea.

    Reading - write down words that they do not know - and the definitions.
    Have them find the problem, the rising action and the denuement.

    Have an in-class discussion on how they would behave should they loose something valuable that they borrowed.

    Talk about irony in literature and have them write an ironic conclusion to their idea on a story about a necklace.

    This site has some ideas also.
