Heather Clydesdale of the Asia Society has an article online “To Grow Good Writers, Feed them Great Literature”. Literature based reading and writing instruction is commonly utilized in English language programming throughout elementary and middle schools. This article discusses how to find great literature that can be used in Chinese immersion programming that employ literature based reading and writing instruction:

Especially noteworthy is the list of resources with online texts in Chinese at the end of the article. This one (in traditional characters) is an excellent source of online literature. Programs using simplified characters may want to consider appropriate adaptations of the texts to meet student needs.
