this is a call ...

I'm reviewing a couple of books for the upcoming AATE Review Of Books (English In Australia) and would appreciate any feedback if anyone has been using them in the classroom.

There are four short stories anthologies:

Kavanagh, M. & M. Kavanagh, A. Tan (eds) (2003) Australian Short Stories Book 1: Fantastic. OUP: Melbourne.

Kavanagh, M. & M. Kavanagh (eds) (2003) Australian Short Stories Book 2: A Moment in Time. OUP: Melbourne.

Kavanagh, M. & M. Kavanagh (eds) (2003) Australian Short Stories Book 3: Reading the Signs. OUP: Melbourne.

Baines, R. (ed.) (2003) Journey through Humour. OUP: Melbourne.

And there is a dictionary/thesaurus, but I won't bother you with that.

I have used the first short story anthology with my Y7s and 8s and they loved some of them. Opened up some good discussions re: their own creative writing. Some sensible activities included. But these things are always much of a muchness and I'm not sure what to write about really.

anyway ...
