        I would add that depending on the complexity of the text (knowing some historical texts can be difficult to read for kids), offering a reading guide (e.g., some vocab, background on why the text or words might sound a bit out of place today) and questions to consider might help to get them started.

          Loi is right. SHEG has good WH resources. I'm using the lessons now.
