Resource for Short Stories
« on: March 15, 2019, 07:17:30 PM »
I wanted to share a resource I found that features over a thousand short stories, hundreds of which feature a recording of a native English speaker reading the story aloud. The stories are divided into several different categories and are rated by their reading difficulty/reading level. After each story,
the Flesch-Kincaid grade level, Flesch reading ease score, percent of passive sentences, average number of words per sentence, and the total number of words in the story are listed. In addition to this information, a list of vocabulary words from the story is also listed. These correspond to the custom google search found on the main page where you can search for specific vocabulary words and find stories wher those words appear.

This resource might be useful for finding short stories for in class reading activities or for finding examples of vocabulary words in context.
