Short Stories for teenagers!

October 13, 2009

Our Teen sts and Teps will soon face some reading either from books of short stories in order to do their Book reports. For this level I´d rather have then read an online short story, because they can choose at their own pace in an environment they are quite used: the internet. I selected some websites tha t I´ve analysed to check:

http://www.rong-chang.com/easyread/index.html – Easy reading for beginners. The T can have the stories on boar and there is the possibility for LISTENING to the stories. Great choice.

http://www.eslfast.com/ – this works the same way, but for higher levels.

Now if you want to learn more about how to work with short stories for adults, I´d recommend this one, it´s full of ideas and reference: http://www.yourdictionary.com/esl/short-stories.html

Now, if you´re looking for short stories for kids, you could really take a look at these websites:

Come with more suggestions if you have any, and before I forget: HAPPY TEACHERS´DAY! =D
