Connecting with Folk Tales

I will perform a pairing of a personal narrative and folk tale that center on a central theme. Then, I will lead them through a workshop writing experience to create their own pairing, using a personal experience that has a theme in common with a well known fairy tale. This workshop will include a lesson plan that a teacher can use if they wish to continue this is a writing assignmenet with their students.

Exploring Fairy Tales from Around the World

I will perform two different versions of a fairy tale. We will discuss what is the same and what is different. Then, we will brainstorm and begin the process of them coming up with their own version of a well known fairy tale. This workshop includes a lesson plan and template for the teacher to use if they choose to use this as the beginning of a writing assignments for students.
