Less is More

Teaching literature with short texts, grades 6-12

Less is More draws on research as well as real-life classroom experiences to show how short texts can engage a wider range of middle- and high-school students. The book examines how short texts can be easily integrated into the curriculum, without sacrificing required novels. Its chapters look at different genres of text, including short stories, essays, memoir, and graphic novels. Each chapter also provides reading, writing, and response strategies, as well as a broad selection of rich short-text resources guaranteed to appeal to even the most reluctant reader. Discover for yourself the power of short texts to support and encourage your students` skills as readers, writers, and students of literature.
