About the Book

This instructor’s companion guide to L’Étranger (The Stranger) provides an organized, step-by-step approach to making the classic French text readily accessible to students in the L2 classroom. Instructors can choose from a wide scope of activities at multiple levels of language and philosophical reflection to enhance their course content.
Formulated for various advanced reading levels, the workbook includes a chapter-by-chapter study of L’Étranger in its original French translation, along with 220 vocabulary, grammar and comprehension activities that incorporate a variety of strategies to support various learning needs and styles. Biographical and historical contexts are also included, as well as the outlines of Camus’ philosophy in relation to the novel.
Answer keys to the language exercises as well as suggested answers to the comprehension and discussion-based activities are included in the instructor’s volume Explorons L’Étranger d’Albert Camus: Édition de l’enseignant but are not provided in its student’s counterpart Explorons L’Étranger d’Albert Camus: Édition de l’étudiant.

Book Reviews & Awards

• “Dr. Boyer’s knowledge of Camus’ work is extremely impressive. Her guides, Teaching Camus’ L’Etranger and Reading Camus’ L’Etranger, are two highly original and significant contributions to the study of Camus and especially to L’Etranger, read widely by high school and/or university students in French. They will help instructors and students approach Camus in a great number of ways. They weave together linguistic and literary exercises, emphasizing French language proficiency as well as reflective activities designed to promote analytical skills. They are also written in an elegant style that is easily readable by all students, including those who might only have basic reading skills in French.”—Rose Marie Kuhn, Professor of French, California State University Fresno

• Wonderful! High school and college teachers who intend to teach Camus’s L’Étranger must read this and they will no doubt adopt it.—Didier G. Bertrand, Associate Professor of French, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis
