Teaching Short Stories in the ELA Classroom

October 26, 2019

Using short stories in the ELA classroom can allow for the exploration of a wider variety of authors and issues than relying solely on novels. In this #2ndaryELA Twitter chat, middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed short story selection and instruction. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about short stories. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed which short stories they use in which grades. Teachers also shared how they select short stories based on themes and skills.

Scroll down to read through the chat. You'll get ideas about supporting comprehension during reading. You'll also find ideas about skill-based work and engaging activities.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
