This is a 'New Windmills Collection' of stories from the literary heritage paired with stories by contemporary writers.
Based on the recommended authors list in the revised Key Stage 3 curriculum, this collection brings together great authors from the literary heritage and the best contemporary writers.
The book is divided into four sections each of which introduces readers to a different genre.
A six lesson scheme of work and assessment task accompanies each genre.
Each contemporary story is paired with a story from the literary heritage to help make classic literature more accessible.
The pairing of stories encourages comparisons between texts, helping students to develop an important skill required at GCSE.
