Deep Dark Fairy Tales & Folklore
$ 250.00
15 available
In this middle school literature class, well be diving into the darker side of folk literature, studying world mythology (from Greek to West African to Japanese to Navajo) and world folklore (from fables to legends to fairy tales). Each week, students will be sent home with stories from around the world to read (including things like Greek myths, Brothers Grimm fairy tales, and various legends) and a related creative writing assignment.

Not all stories will be spooky, but these are definitely not the Disney versions so be warned: some stories involve things like injury, death, and the supernatural. But if youre ready to read about monsters and heroes and magic then join us for a spectacular adventure!

Each week we will focus on a different genre of folk literature (such as Creation Stories, Trickster Tales, or Grimms’ Fairy Tales) and we will spend class time discussing the stories we read as homework that week.

NOTE:

Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
