Teach elements of literature using classic fairy tales! This unit covers plot, theme, point of view, analyzing sections of text, and comparing and contrasting. Throughout the unit, students will work collaboratively on tableaux, group discussions, jigsaws, and skits. Individual work includes writing essays and using graphic organizers.

Using fairy tales allows for complex text--especially if you use the original versions!--while increasing the engagement for students to either revisit old favorites, or discover the genre for the first time.
