Summary

Instructional materials for the passe compose and imperfect tenses in French use the technique of presenting familiar stories in the foreign language, written in the present tense, which students must place in the past by changing verb forms. The objective is to avoid the disadvantages of simply translating verb tenses and to allow the student to get the concept of past tenses by using the tenses in context. Six brief stories are presented in French: Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and Star Wars. Each verb, presented in the present, is numbered. Students are to write their choice of verb form on the answer sheet, which is provided in the document and is suitable for duplication. Students compare their responses with the answer key, which is also provided, and the teacher is encouraged to be prepared for discussion of verb choice. (MSE)
