Easy Short Stories
« on: March 16, 2020, 11:10:31 PM »
One way to engage beginner readers is to read lower level short stories. This is an easy to use site with beginner-level ESL short stories: https://www.eslfast.com/. What is great about this site is that there are different levels for different levels of readers, with a lot of short story options.

One way I might use this site in class is to assign a group of students different short stories to read and then act out for the rest of class. This might engage beginning readers to understand the text, to use vocabulary words aloud in the context, and because of the friendly and fun nature of the activity, hopefully students are motivated to do the reading and to understand it.

Beyond this site, there are plenty of lower-level beginner books that can serve as a replacement for this activity.
