As a public high school English teacher, the biggest challenge I have is getting students to read in class or at home. Put a book or short story in front of them, they'll look at it for a few seconds and start day dreaming...
Until I stumbled upon something magnificant. Teenagers like accomplishment. These worksheets ask questions while the reader reads. Every couple of sentences, there's another question in true or false, fill in the blank, define, multiple choice formats. As the student reads, boom, another question. They answer it and continue reading. Before you know it, they have finished reading the story and completed all questions for further lessons/discussions.
Please try this lesson FREE with your classes. Your students will sit down, quietly read the story and answer the questions. Try it, you will be amazed! Students reading! Students Learing! Students behaving! Students Comprehending!
These worksheets are great for daily lessons, test/quiz grades, extra credit, homework, group work (in pairs of two), substitute teacher lessons, emergency lesson plans, great for ESOL or however you can imagine.
I have been teaching in a public high school for 8 years in all high school grade levels (Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors). My techniques and strategies have shown increases in the state assessment tests.
