Short Stories | Reading Activities

Here are 20 of my all-time favorite short stories available as online tests. Students read the texts, answer the multiple-choice questions, and respond to the long-response prompts. Students can print, save, or email their responses. They can even share their scores on Facebook, if the kids are still doing the Facebook. Warning: Some of these texts contain violence. Mature subjects and themes may be at hand as well. Read these texts for appropriateness before you assign them to students. Visit my page on short stories to find better descriptions and alternate file formats for these texts.

    My students are unable to print from their chromebooks. Is there a way for me to see their score without receiving 100 emails?

    Reply
    • I’m working on integrating with Google Classroom, but I’m afraid not. Perhaps make a new email address just to receive score submissions?

    Hello, I’ve just found this fantastic resource and I would like to work through the ereading worksheets but can’t seem to go beyond the passages to locate the questions. Is there something I need to do to access the questions? For example, I’m trying to work on the passage about seat belts at the moment as this is the type of resource which I feel would benefit my students. Thank you. Donna Henderson.

    Dear Mr. Morton,
    I am a former teacher of 25 years in primary education. I retired five years ago after being so discouraged with the direction I saw education turning. I now am an educational coach to students Pre-K through high school and mentor parents in getting their children the guidance they need academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. I used this for the first time today on a freshman who has an IEP and they are saying she is mastering content she indeed has not. Thank you for your commitment to the students and families.

    These are great, but there seem to be a lot of mistakes! Do we know who administers this site? Commercial? Educational?

    Reply
    • Yikes! I’m a single man, single in the sense of being one person. I have a family, and a teaching job, and the meager semblance of a social life. I appreciate any help anyone can offer in pointing out these errors. I will fix the errors shortly after I am notified. Best wishes!
