ELA – Fantasy Writing and Fantasy Book Clubs. Students will tackle the demanding and complex genre of Fantasy. Students will learn to build the world of a story when it is another world. Students will develop thematic understanding and learn about how authors develop themes to study the way authors approach common themes in Fantasy. We will make sense of multiple plot lines, layered characters and author’s craft.
