I've been looking for a comprehensive lesson plan for fairy tales, folktales and fables for my high school creative writing classes. This is great. These assignments can be used individually or as a unit. Clear and easy to use. I wanted more on Fables, however.
I broke these up and created individual handouts for each assignment. Lots of fun writing projects. My students really enjoyed them. I also bought her Memory Book project and used it with great success!
On  November 6, 2011Mrs Sandy answered:
I teach creative writing at the high school level and I'm always surprised at how involved Juniors and Seniors get when writing their own version of fairy tales. They love them!
