The following is a collection of short stories I wrote and posted to use with ELLs. Each story starts with the title, followed by GLS (General Service List) information, grade level, ease of reading and finally the body of the story itself. I started writing these stories because I couldn’t find any short (under 1000 words) stories which I felt were complete in and of themselves, interesting for my students, and could be used in one or two class periods as stand alone material. Feel free to use these stories however you would like in class. If you have any suggestions for novel ways to use them, I would love to hear about it.
