Overview

This book is a collection of 24 open-ended stories on some creative and unexpected topics, each followed by a number of discussion activities and creative projects. One of the big challenges as an ESL teacher is to get students to engage with literature. That is why the stories in this collection venture a bit outside the box, with topics designed to get them thinking in new ways. The stories in this book will challenge the students’ assumptions about gender roles, relationships, the meaning of success, and even reality itself. Students will be driven to engage with the stories, whether they agree or disagree with some of the views in them.

Reading truly is a two-way street. That is why this collection is focused on also involving students with the creative process. The activities and projects that follow each story are focused on getting students connecting to the stories through writing. And, as the title suggests, all the stories in this collection are left open-ended to help students engage directly with literature by writing their own ending. They will also come to understand the underlying purpose of creative writing: communication.

About Publisher
  • Alphabet Publishing
    Alphabet Publishing is a small, independent publishing company that specializes in textbooks in the area of English language learning and resources for teachers. We believe that a good teacher is resourceful, with a well-stocked toolkit full of ways to elicit, explain, guide, review, encourage and inspire. We help stock that teacher toolkit by providing teachers with books of practical, useful, and research-based activities and techniques. Feel free to browse our catalog of books and if you like, you can get in touch. We love to hear back about what worked and what didn’t work and what kinds of resources you’d like to see us put out. About Our Logo Our logo, designed by Josh Comen, represents a tree growing out of nib of a pen, or perhaps the tree is the ink spilling. It makes me think of the Tree of Knowledge, with knowledge kept and transmitted through written words. A tree is always growing and changing as is knowledge. At the same time, what are the books we write it, but paper that comes from trees? There’s a cyclical nature then to the tree growing from the pen and the pen growing from the tree. About Our Name It so happens that I chose the name of my company on August 10th, 2015. Now, I chose the name partially on the advice of my son, who was about to turn three at the time. I asked him, “What I should name my publishing company.” He said, “Alphabet.” So I took his advice. It’s worth noting that he also suggested naming his stuffed puppy Alphabet. And the car. And a girl he played with at the library. At the time, I thought it odd that lots of alphabet-related domains were taken. Then I looked at the news: Meet Google Alphabet – Google’s new parent company. We are are in no way affiliated with Google or Alphabet. However, if they feel that my son deserves a commission fee, we won’t say no.
