151824, 5 & 6 graders...suggestions for short stories?
- Jul 1, 2005Hello all,
I'm doing a little teaching at UC Berkeley's "Summer Camp for Gifted
Children" this July. (A teacher fell while out salsa dancing and broke her
ankle-- she may have just strained the Achilles tendon, the X-rays aren't
clear. So, would I like the job? I don't normally teach youngsters, but...
Three classes for three weeks staring Monday. I'll be teaching writing to
middle schoolers, speech to 4 & 5 graders (that should be fun), and --
FANTASY FICTION!! to 4, 5 & 6 graders -- any suggestions for short stories?
Thanks loads! Lezlie
"...it concerns three men who are about to be executed. The prison governor
calls them to his office, and explains that each will be granted a last
request. The first one confesses that he has led a sinful life, and would
like to see a priest. The governor says he thinks he can arrange that. And
the second man? The second man explains that he is a professor of
cybernetics. His last request is to deliver a final and definitive answer to
the question: what is cybernetics? The governor accedes to this request
also. And the third man? Well, he is a doctoral student of the professor --
his request is to be executed second."Joke Related by Stafford Beer
