About Glisam and Its Flash Fiction

Glisam® Language Arts Solutions was founded in 2014 by Ann Francis, a New Jersey high school teacher specializing in English and special education with twenty-three years of teaching experience. Recognizing the critical importance of vocabulary development, Ann began writing short stories that used students’ weekly vocabulary words. The stories were written with teens’ interests in mind and teachers’ needs in mind.

Most of the stories contain no more than a thousand words, putting them into the category of flash fiction. Since they are used to help students build vocabulary quickly, Vocabulary in a Flash seemed like a fitting phrase for describing the collection of stories.

In addition to vocabulary development, Glisam® offers materials for teaching writing. Visit our store at Teacherspayteachers.com https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Glisam-Language-Arts-Solutions.
