Christina Niven from EL Civics (which I ranked number one The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship list — her site is also on number other of my “The Best…” lists) just wrote about a site called American Folklore.
It has many great short stories that would be accessible to English Language Learners.
I’m adding one section, Holiday Stories and Winter Tales, to The Best Places To Learn About Christmas, Hanukkah, & Kwanzaa.
But it has a lot more than that, including separate sections on Canadian, Mexican, Latin American, and Native American Folklore. I’ve used these kinds of stories very effectively in my Geography classes.
