The PowerPoint and PDF resources provided in this EMC Free downloadable publication have been written to accompany the anthology Iridescent Adolescent: Diverse Literary Short Stories.
Informed by the experiences of a working group of teachers, who trialled the stories with their students and developed their own materials, these free PowerPoint lesson sequences place the stories themselves at the heart of learning.

We are using Diverse Shorts and Iridescent Adolescent at our school and the teachers and students LOVE them!
I just had a meeting with our Year 9 teachers and they were so enthusiastic about the Iridescent collection and the teaching resources. They said the discussions in class have been the best they've had for a long time.
