Product Description
As you begin a study of fairy tales or any fantasy-based literature, use this activity that examines two argument essays about the impact fairy tales have on children. In “Fairy Tales: A Nightmare in Disguise,” the writer argues that fairy tales are the cause of several social ills. In the other essay, “Fairy Tales: A Tool to Help Humanity,” the writer argues that fairy tales bring many benefits not only to children, but also to society as a whole.

After reading the two opposing viewpoints, students will answer a series of questions requiring them to analyze the essays and form their own opinion.

This activity can stand by itself as a lesson on argument writing and can also be used as a sub plan. It was specificially designed, though, to be a launching lesson into a deeper study of fairy tales as a genre or with any fantasy or magical realism novel.

Note: This item is included in my four-day film study unit on The Princess Bride. If you’ve already purchased The Princess Bride materials, located here, please do NOT also buy this item separately. You already have these materials.
