    fairy tales
    By Chris

    You could go with the standard lessons on the components of fairy tales: immerse the students in a lot of them, reading aloud, partner reading, etc... Then have student work together to identify what is in a fairy tale. List them on chart paper, go back a read more to confirm. Extend with the writing of their own. OR, you could extend (or begin) with a look at "fractured fairy tales"(tales written from the perspective of a different character, i.e.: stepmother in Cinderella, etc...) and lessons on point of view. Students could write their own, after brainstorming collectively fairy tales to work with and possible fractures. Good Luck!
