This is an 18 slide lecture, providing an introduction to Fairy and Folk Tales. It focuses more on the definition of Fairy Tales (as stories involving beings from Fairyland) before including the more commonly known Folk Tales. It then discusses common elements of Fairy/Folk Tales, plot points, and tropes and cliches.
This is a great starting point for a unit on Fairy/Folk Tales. I did this power point with my students and then had them use what they'd learned to discuss well-known stories and then write their own.
