Genre Study – Ind. Study


Deposit Due at Time of Registration:

Choose one of these two genres for an in-depth study.
Magical Realism– With roots in Latin America, magical realism has become a global genre. Magical elements allow for mystery and contemplation of the world while upholding a more realistic exploration of the world. Magical realism often has social and political undertones for consideration.
Gothic– Gothic literature grew from Romanticism and today stands as one of the most alluring genres in publication. If intense emotion, mysterious houses, ambiguous events, a general feel of unease and gloom, and an exploration of the psychological are appealing, you may have found your genre.

Jess Woods graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor's degree in English Education and from Arizona State University with a Master's degree in English. She began her career teaching in a public high school; however, since 2013, she has been teaching middle school and high school English courses online.  Jess is a life-long reader and writer.  She comes alive in the company of words and music, and she has a passion for literature that reaches through every part of her being.  She believes wholeheartedly that each person has a relevant voice and perspective, and she eagerly teaches her students to embrace their individual voices by exploring their own thoughts and learning to confidently articulate them.  It is her desire to encourage growth in all students (regardless of their love for English courses…or lack thereof).  She considers it a tremendous success if she can awaken a love of literature and/or composition in her students. Jess currently resides in Alabama with her pastor-husband, Josh and their three kids. They also have a lot of animals and plants.  While reading and writing are clearly on the top of her hobby list, Jess also enjoys all things musical, cooking competition shows, gardening,  hiking, and traveling.
