Amazon Link

Buy direct from Alphabet Publishing

Sci-Fi Fantasy Graded Readers for ELT are designed to bring science fiction and fantasy into the ESL or EFL classroom. These genres allow readers to grapple with serious issues in an indirect setting. And they do so in a way that promotes the use of the imagination: Science fiction with its predictions and promises of the future, and fantasy with its ability to take us to places we could never go. Science fiction shows us places we may go, while fantasy, the places we wish we could! 

Check out any (or all!) from this exciting new series based on Outside the Box!

Stories Without End

2019 ELTons Finalist Stories Without End engages students with literature through intriguing short stories that make them think and wonder. What if we could teleport anywhere in the world whenever we wanted to? Will robots ever replace human teachers? Why are some people optimists while others are pessimists? Where does our personality come from?

“All the English textbooks books I’ve used before are boring, but this is so unique.” Yurie S. ESL Student 

What Would You DO?

What Would You Do? by Taylor Sapp is more than just a collection of 81 tricky hypothetical situations. Each dilemma includes suggested solutions, variations, and extension activities so they’re easy to adapt to your students and your classroom.

“The situations in this book go way beyond the usual “What would you do if…” questions I used to use in class, providing both scaffolding and expansion to really take it to the next level. A great resource!” Andrew Lawrence, ESL Professor, Concordia University

Outside the Box

Outside the Box is the latest Stories Without End book, a collection of science-fiction and fantasy stories without endings, leaving students to write their own, drawing on their own creativity. Even the most reluctant writer will find themselves sucked in with this deceptively simple method of getting students to write!

Overall, I found the stories in the book fun to work through and would recommend the book to someone who likes to write YA or who is trying to give some creative direction and fun to their class’s writing assignments. L. Hall – Amazon Review
