Paper Trails An Anthology of Short Short Stories by Cheryl Griffin, Maureen Stewart

Don't stay in the classroom today. Pick a story from Paper Trails and take a journey to somewhere new ... Vietnam perhaps, or New York, or go bush with Yanni in his dreams. Be Greek, be black, be white, be old, be a girl, be a mouse, be a vampire. Go to court, go forward in time to the year 2155. Be happy, be sad, be scared. But don't stay in the classroom today. Paper Trails is an evocative collection of bite-sized, lesson-sized, short, short stories for students in Years 7 and 8. As each of these short, short stories can be read in less than twelve minutes, all of your students will enjoy them. Many of the stories are of Australian origin, although there is also an international flavour to the collection. Each story has a variety of student tasks that will encourage close reading, discussion and informed writing activities.
