Discovering Fiction is a three–level anthology of short stories by contemporary and classic American authors such as Isaac Asimov, Edgar Allen Poe, Sandra Cisneros, Kate Chopin, Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes, and Mark Twain. The texts provide interactive, skill–building tasks around each story. Extensive pre–reading activities capture students’ interest, comprehension activities check students’ understanding, and grammar and vocabulary tasks increase students’ language knowledge. Thought–provoking discussion and writing assignments enhance students’ ability to interpret and appreciate literature. In addition, WebQuests take students beyond the reading to expand their knowledge of the topic while building Internet reading skills.


  • Discovering Fiction equips students to read and understand authentic short stories. As students develop the reading, vocabulary, and critical thinking skills they need, they progress from adapted to authentic literature.
  • The greatest authors, from Hughes to Cisneros, from Hemingway to Chopin, give students a thorough background in North American literature and provide insights into the culture that produced each work.
  • Discovering Fiction pays special attention to the skills needed to read literature, and every unit teaches students to guess meaning from context and understand literary devices.
  • Students become better readers as they navigate authentic websites. Their answers can be printed out or emailed to the instructor

(A Teacher's Guide is available on the publishers website.)
