Enseñanza Del Ingles Literatura Actividad Curricular
The ability to read is very important in the civilized world. Knowledge is becoming increasingly important, and the reading ability is a key skill for active participation. So, the object of this research paper is to write a proposal to determine how the reading skill can be developed through short stories for senior students at high school. We have made a questionnaire for an interview and also a survey to collect important information and ideas about the reading skill as developed in class, and we suggest activities using short stories as a very good tool to teach reading because stories bring realistic situations into the classroom to motivate students to continue the reading practice. The interview and the survey contributed valuable information that we could use in the research project. Both of these investigations revealed valuable information concerning the reading skill. As is evident, we used quantitative and qualitative methods to acquire information. Concerning these questionnaires the students expressed that it is a good idea to learn English through new activities for reading in English classes by using short stories; most of the students also agreed thatreading can help them to gain information because books are tools to increase knowledge.
