I'm trying to compile a collection of short stories for mixed ability students to use in class; materials that might engage key stage 3 classes mainly. There's no specific theme or anything; just really good short stories that tend to engage young people and I might be able to do some really creative things with. My selections have so far included: The Hitchhiker by Roald Dahl, The Juiper Tree (Pullman/Grimms), Dead Men's Path by Chinuaw A, The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe and there are more ! I think stories with twists and turns are great but there are just so many to choose!! Any ideas would be much appreciated...!!
