I am a Chinese teaching English in China.I happen to come here and I hope I can find some help here.Right now English teaching in high school in china is in quite a fast development.Nearly two or three years,the text book changes for another edition.

And I am looking for the reading materials since the the old ones are quite out of date.The reading materials I need are short passages about 200 to 300 words covering the latest topics from science ,brief introduction to successful people, brief introductions to foreign countries like New Zealand and modern agriculture.If there are 4 or 5 questions attached behind each material,testing studetns' understanding on the context, that will be of much help.

Your help would be much appreciated.

If you have access to the Internet and a printer, I think you can find some excellent texts for your students. Try the following sites for some great stuff:
