This is great for ESL or lower level secondary classes. Students learn how to write and understand different point of view by researching a common fairy tale, and then rewriting it from another character's point of view. This is a project grade, and my ELL and ESL students love doing this every year.
Be sure to tell the boys that Grimm's fairy tales are MUCH darker than the Disney ones.
Also great for learning to write dialogue, characterization and syntax!
