Abstract:

"While there are many collections of short stories available for young adults, precious few contain instructional support for their teachers. In Short does. With fifteen stories from award-winning authors, such as Avi, Joan Bauer, and T.A. Barron, and teaching suggestions for you, it's the ideal resource for offering students an entry point into the genre." "In Short can be used to study the form of the short story, introduce novels, tackle teen issues, link content across the curriculum, and teach literary elements such as theme, setting, character, and tone. And with its contemporary, diverse stories and powerful teaching tools, it's bound to be a hit with you and your students."--Jacket.
