YouTube Readings of Selected Stories

Here you will find listed a number of YouTube videos in which kind souls have recorded readings of some of the texts required by your English class.  You may feel free to listen to this recordings as you read your text.  Studies have shown that reading and listening at the same time boosts learning!  (...and will make it more likely you'll pass your quizzes and tests the first time!)  Some of these videos however do not follow the text exactly.  Those videos are meant to help you visual the setting of the story, the emotions behind the characters, etc. as you read for yourself.

IMPORTANT!COMPASS often breaks the stories up into sections with questions and additional notes between sections.  It is to your advantage to pause the video when the lesson pauses in its reading.  Why? Often those sections will include comprehension questions, prediction spots and other tools that will help you understand the text you're reading.  If you just listen straight through, you'll miss out on these valuable sections.

Gift of the Magi Thank You M'am The Cask of Amontillado (video)
Rules of the Game The Necklace The Sniper
The White Heron The Most Dangerous Game
