I have done cloze exercises with certain passages and then I have students listen to the recorded CD.  The CD can also be valuable if students are interested in doing independent pronunciation exercises.

The DVD of Nous, Princesses de Clèves, comes with a highly informative booklet with an interview with the producer.  I recommend using excerpts of the booklet for class discussions or response papers.  It is a very useful, rich resource.

These two works offer insights for approaching the Princesse de Clèves with students.

In October 2013, La Princesse de Clèves was presented at the Théâtre National Populaire.  Here is a link to a brief video with reflections on the work and this particular theatrical interpretation:

In January 2014, La Princesse de Clèves was presented at the Théâtre de la Bastille.  They prepared a “dossier pédagogique” for the play and it is a valuable resource for students that includes references to Sarkozy, the importance of this novel in 2014, etc.

This site enables you to listen to a conference on La Princesse de Clèves by Alain Finkielkraut that took place at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France:

This includes a reading of various key passages of the novel accompanied by music…I strongly recommend it.  To listen to this program on France Inter, click below:

I strongly recommend this France Inter program with a discussion by Camille Esmein-Sarrazin about the new edition and other aspects of La Princesse de Clèves:
