PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The short story The Chaser by John Collier is a perfect lesson for middle and high school around Valentine's Day, but it could be used at any time in the year! The story is about a young man named Alan who is desperate to make a woman named Diana fall in love with him. So desperate, in fact, that he is willing to use a love potion!

Not only is this a story students love, it is also useful in teaching inferential thinking, as the reader must make inferences to understand the plot.
