This assignment asks students to choose a fairy tale, read it, analyze it and do some research to support their analysis in relation to a research topic of their choosing. They will then take their research and create an informative presentation on the history or background of the famous fairy tale. Their information will be presented to their classmates through one of the options given on the assignment. This could be used as an introduction activity at the beginning of a unit or at the end of the unit as a culminating activity. A research journal to go along with this project is also available for purchase.
