Library of America: Story of the Week
Sign up to receive a free story every week. From the website: "Every Monday The Library of America features a new Story of the Week. It could be anything: a short work of fiction, a character sketch, an essay, a journalist's dispatch, a poem. It could be Stephen Crane's 'The Black Dog' or George Jean Nathan's 'Baiting the Umpire.' What is certain is that it will be memorable because every story is from one of the hundreds of classic works of American literature published by The Library of America."
A great website for high school students wishing to read poetry.

Each section can be reviewed to see if you were correct/incorrect along with a detailed explanation of the problem.
