Stories Without End –
Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories Without End for Learning and Discussion
Finalist, British Council ELTons Award for Innovation in English Language Teaching 2019
“the storylines are imaginative and varied, and the concept of encouraging written fluency by getting students to create their own ‘flash fiction’ is something my classes enjoyed immensely” —IATEFL Voices
“One of the best [lessons] this year for engagement, and tonnes of language production.” —Peter Clements, British Councils, and author of 30 Roleplays for TEFL
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?
Stories Without End also gets students creating with engaging projects. Because the stories have no end, students will have to create their own. They’ll also find themselves writing about one particular character, drawing a scene from the story, interviewing people about the theme of the story, or keeping a dream journal. Each story is also supported with questions and vocabulary activities to introduce the story and followed by discussion questions.
Perfect for teaching reading, creative writing, or discussion. And it’s a flexible resource. Use it as the main book for a month-long elective, as a regular supplement activity, or an occasional treat for the students!
