I like for student to listen to story as they read along. Afterwards, students pair up to read with a partner. As they read they make annotation and look up unfamiliar vocabulary. After reading with a partner, I use the PPT to question their comprehension. To further deepen their understanding of the story and the author's literary style, students work with a partner to analyze the story.
I also do a quick grammar review and then quiz them. After each story that is read in class, students are quizzed. Knowing that they will be quizzed days later helps students stay focused in class.
