World of Stories (hannah)

Note: This class is open to middle school students only.

How does culture shape our stories and storytelling? How do stories transform when they’re transmitted from culture to culture? What can we learn about other cultures by reading their stories? 

In this class, we will explore these questions by reading literature from around the world. Types of texts will include excerpts from novels, short stories, and poetry by authors including Jhumpa Lahiri, Haruki Murakami, Homer, Yann Martel, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Oscar Wilde, and Isabel Allende. 

This is a class about reading and discussing texts and culture. There will be some analytical writing assignments in and outside of class.
