Flash fiction, the shortest of the short story, is perfect for teens to write. But difficult, at the same time. They struggle with compacting their many ideas into one coherent, creative, powerful piece...and that's the beauty of constructive struggle. In the process of writing these very personal short short stories, students are able to create plot maps, characters, conflicts, work with others, give and receive feedback, and present their creations. Perfect for grades 8, 9 or 10.
