Sayers (Marymount College) collects short fiction and non-fiction by prestigious authors from around the world to inspire less-prepared students to think critically about what they read. Brief questions before each story alert readers to important themes, and questions after each reading encourage students to think about basic plot details and concepts. Ideas for writing and further discussion help students relate events in the stories to their own lives. A simple glossary precedes most stories. Authors collected include Langston Hughes, Isabel Allende, Anton Chekov, and Maya Angelou. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
