North American short stories enhance students’ reading skills, language learning, and enjoyment of literature.
Discovering Fiction is a three-level anthology of short stories by contemporary and classic American authors such as Isaac Asimov, Edgar Allen Poe, Sandra Cisneros, Kate Chopin, Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes, and Mark Twain. The texts provide interactive, skill-building tasks around each story. Extensive pre-reading activities capture students’ interest, comprehension activities check students’ understanding, and grammar and vocabulary tasks increase students’ language knowledge. Thought-provoking discussion and writing assignments enhance students’ ability to interpret and appreciate literature. In addition, WebQuests take students beyond the reading to expand their knowledge of the topic while building Internet reading skills.
