Short Stories with Questions

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.
