As a narrative strategy, magical realism aims to blur the boundaries of our perceived reality by its matter-of-fact inclusion of magical elements in a seemingly realistic fiction as a form of social commentary. In this class for students in grades 9-12, we will examine different manifestations of magic realism in Latin American cuentos and their historical context. We will also learn about the various writers, their crafts, and their distinctive techniques and styles. And to further explore, students will write their own short story that examines a current social, political or cultural dilemma by the end of the class.
This is a credit-bearing class and grades will be given. Please check the supply list tab for materials needed to complete this class.
