This is a review of a page which might be very useful for English teachers: britlit
On this page we can find several short stories and poems written by British authors. You can not only print the whole text but listen to it and work on the different activities and teacher's tips attached to them.
One of the good things about it is that you are in touch with real language which you can also listen to as it is read by native speakers.
Another very good thing is that if you are short for time everything is already there for you to use, you only have to download the activities you want your students to work with.
The available resources are divided according to your students' age, that is, primary, secondary and teens.
On the left of the page you can find a selection of texts. Every text includes a short description on the piece of literature we're going to work with.
I'd recommend this page for every teacher looking for something different to the sort of texts found in English cousebooks .
