Students will analyze the story of the week taking a close look at the morals of the story. The last 15-20 minutes of class will allow students to respond to the story.

Ms. Rae love's reading. She grew up with a passion for old literature (probably the only 8th Grader in my school reading Agatha Christie novels for fun) and fairytales. One of her favorite classes in college was a study of fairytales and fables. This class was created to help her writing students boost their critical thinking skills while embracing the joys of reading.
Students are invited to read each story outside of class but are not required to. Students are asked to finish their written work outside of class if they are unable to finish it in class.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class does not use the class Grimm version of each fairytale. The Fairytales used have modified endings (example: the wolf runs away). While the stories' endings are modified many classic fairytales include discussion of violence (eaten by a wolf), theft (he stole the golden harp), and being mean (she left the children in the woods).
