Final Essay: Fairy Tale Unit

Final Essay: Fairy Tale Unit
Product Description
Using this assignment, students will produce 1000-1500 words of close analysis on a topic of their complete choosing.

In essence, students are challenged to bring all knowledge, culled from a unit study on fairy tales, in concert. They will consider the writings of Bruno Bettelheim, Neil Postman, Ira Glass, Anne Sexton, Francine Prose, Martin Hallett, and Barbara Karasek. Then, choose a fairy tale to analyze.

The essay can be constructed in any format. It must, of course, have a thesis/argument. This statement will answer a debatable question about the written and visual adaptations of your choice. Examples for thesis statements are included within the body of this document (such as: Neil Postman and Bruno Bettelheim affirm the original intentions of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm; fairy tales, such as Jack and the Beanstalk, teach children that there is normalcy and potential solace in suffering. Cartoon adaptations of this popular tale impose a culture industry effect, seeking to protect and preserve innocence, consequently denying children the opportunity to grow in the face of adversity.). The rubric is also included.
