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.
