I teach a literature class for middle school students and I thought it would be cool to have them read a spooky short story this week, it being Halloween and all.
They are advanced ESL students. We just finished reading Pride and Prejudice and Oliver Twist (unabridged) - they understood most of the text, if not all the subtleties. I think they would enjoy a short story mystery, but a creepy story would also be cool. I considered Lovecraft, but I somehow doubt they’d appreciate him. Any ideas?
