Hi, this resource should be great for students with learning difficulties who find it hard to access 'literary' texts like classics etc. Here it is:

Free digital literature resource for KS3 English

The HOTBOOK is a set of 40 digitised literary texts for use in KS3 English. It comes with a teachers’ guide and classroom activities, designed by English teachers.

In the HOTBOOK, poems and extracts from plays, novels, non-fiction texts and broadcasts are presented as short films, Flash animations, podcasts and HTML web pages. They include Macbeth's "Tomorrow, and tomorrow" speech as stop frame animation, Christina Rossetti's poem "Spring" performed by cartoon rabbits, a rap version of Chaucer's Prologue, an animated version of Benjamin Zephaniah's "Talking Turkeys" and a story of computer gamers by cult sci-fi author Cory Doctorow.

The HOTBOOK was created by if:book, the think and do tank.
