I was wondering if you could help me.....
As you may or may not know, I'm in China teaching English. My original job was teaching at a kindergarden, but last week Sara and I took on a second job at a high school.
The kindergarden is easy for lesson plans, we just play games and flash cards type stuff, and there's a book to follow. But the high school requires more planning. I thought it would be fun if I got a short story and asked them questions about it, but I'm having issues finding an apropriate story, so I was wondering if anyone out there could give a suggestion.
It can really be anything, something you've written something you've read. Just an LJ post, a fanfic, or an actual short story. I wouldn't want it any longer then 2 pages, but one page would be nicer.
The students are kind of inbetween topics at the moment, so the story could be about either:
1) "Growing pains" -ie, kids/teens not seeing eye to eye with their parents. (Why does all QaF fic with this theme, have to be about Justin's Dad? Those are just to extreme here... *sigh*)
2) "Looking good, feeling good"- ummm, I suppose going with a sports story would be the best. A story about how someone really likes sports, and how it makes them happy and healthy....
The high school kids have good English, so it can be written "normally" although if it gets abstract then maybe that shouldn't be rec'ed.
Any help at all would be great!!!
I've been googling it for hours now, but I'm just not coming up with anything.
