Fairy tales in the classroom : teaching students to write stories with meaning through traditional tales by Veronika Charles( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This resource provides teachers in the early grades with the background and practical approaches they need to maximize the potential of traditional tales with their students. Charles outlines the contributions to our understanding of the fairy tale genre by Bettelheim, Favat, Rodari and Jung and then builds on the pioneering work of Vladimir Propp to create an easy to use symbol system which guides students to tell - orally, pictorially and in writing - their own stories based on archetypes that are fully developed in the book. Her approach has been tested in numerous classrooms
