Service Description

There’s a difference between fairies and Faeries. Fairy Tales make you think of Tinkerbell, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast. Fairies are sweet creatures that will grant you wishes, but that’s not what Faeries are. The Fae were a race of magical creatures found all over the world, made up of phoukas in Scotland, djinn in Persia, kitsune in Japan, will-o’-the-wisps of the Appalachian mountains, and ice giants in Norway. More often than not, they caused mischief, luring humans into evil deals. While reading The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, students will learn about the mythology of Faeries, made popular in the British Isles by authors such as Shakespeare and J.R.R. Tolkien. We’ll compare and contrast the Seelie and Unseelie court and their rulers, discuss the themes of the novel, and the changes wrought to them by the ever changing modern world. The class will culminate with the students creating a survival manual for humans who might find themselves stuck in the Nevernever, depending on the area of the world they are in. Materials: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa Annotation Tools: Pen or pencil Highlighters in various colors Sticky notes Sticky flags
