Each of the activities included in this lesson plan can be made simpler by reducing the number of cells required or allowing students to write solely in the present tense. Alternately, the complexity of the lessons can be increased with the use of the passé simple or an increased focus on literary analysis. Be sure to take advantage of the slide show function to allow students to practice oral language as they present their work to their classmates.
