Elections présidentielles françaises : j'ai voté ! - Cécile Lainé
Attached is a short story (with pictures) about a French woman who describes her time at the voting poll. It is written in comprehensible French, with lots of repetition and cognates, so accessible to Novice mid and above. Suggested activities are:

1. Hunt for cognates

2. Cut paragraphs and match paragraphs to pictures

3. Cut paragraphs and sequence them

4. Compare and Contrast French and American voting system (Venn diagram)

...or just SSR/FVR (Silent Sustained Reading/Free Voluntary Reading)
