reading comprehension
I īm planning to prepare a  reading comprehension worksheet  with my own activities.
The problem is that the text that I īm using for the ws is in the Tunisian 9th official coursebook and that a member already included this text in one of her worksheets. What should I do? Should I include the same text and state the source in the ws description? Would my worksheet considered as a copy in that case?
Should I upload my ws without a text?
Recently, one of my ws was reported because it didn īt include a text that īs why I īm confused. 
Thanks in advance.

Actually, it īs against the rules to take texts from esl books even if you add your own exercises.
"It is acceptable to take a text from other sources (not ESL websites or ESL books) and add your own exercises or activities, but you are not allowed to take an exercise from another source and add more exercises of your own. All the exercises must be yours."
So, you should find an alternative text.
