Short Stories

Encontrei neste site, textos para trabalhar com os alunos em inglês. São relativamente fáceis e com exercícios. Espero que sejam úteis para vocês, professores de inglês.

ESL Reading Worksheetsby elcivics.comEach worksheet includes a short paragraph about an everyday problem a character faces, a true-false exercise, a writing prompt, and a black and white image. They are presented in pdf format and should download quickly. I suggest reading the stories to the class before assigning the writing exercises.
Estimated lesson time: 20 minutes.

Oi, tudo bem? Adoro seu blog e gostaria de sugerir um livro que também tem short stories que podem ser trabalhadas com os alunos. O livro é A World of fiction:20 timeless short stories. O interessante é que o livro apresenta questões a serem trabalhadas com as short stories.
Um abraço
