One way in which to deepen students' understanding of genres is to compare and contrast different genres. This Venn diagram helps deepen students understanding of fairy tales and fables by comparing and contrasting the genre features. This Venn diagram can be used alone or I've included the genre features for students to cut out and glue on to the Venn diagram.
This is a perfect addition to any fairy tale study or fable study.
