Though I no longer teach sophomore students, I will always have fond memories of my 10th grade British literature students. If your 10th grade students were prepared like mine, you might be better off starting on this page.
This page contains all of my reading worksheets that were written at a 10th grade reading level. Please remember that readability scanners are imperfect. They are a good place to start though. You may want to click the buttons below to open up additional grade levels. It will provide you with a greater range of material and the content should still be sufficiently challenging for 10th graders.
