Culture - The myths and folktales behind Harry Potter. If the trailers are anything to go by, we already know where to find fantastic beasts: Eddie Redmayne has a suitcase full of them in 1926 New York.
But where did they come from, the dragons, unicorns and hippogriffs of the Harry Potter universe? Monsters and mythical beasts perform a role in JK Rowling’s work which transcends that of world-building: they add symbolic and psychological depth, as well as reminding us that we are visiting a magical place. Rowling is both an inventor and archivist of fantastical animals, populating her universe with a mixture of what one might term ‘classic monsters’ (trolls, centaurs, mer-people) and folklore staples (bowtruckles, erklings), alongside her own inventions (dementors). Some of these collected monsters are vastly better known than others: grindylows and boggarts, for example, have origins in Celtic and English folklore, but they are hardly household names.

The Potter books are quite long and it is doubtful that many in the series could be taught in full because of this. However, they are an invaluable resource when teaching writing skills because of J.K. Rowling's ability to paint pictures so clearly in words that we can see them in our own minds. She captures the physical and psychological aspects of her characters so thoroughly that we can truly feel for them as we would our closest friends when reading about their adventures.
This is a unit I designed to teach students how to wrire about characters and settings effectively. If I said to you ‘I saw a big cat yesterday’, what sized cat would you imagine?
