Fairy Tale Writing Unit

Here is your chance to express your creativity in two masterpieces of your own creation. Simply follow the instructions below to complete both sections of this assignment. 150 points possible.

Part A: 75 Points Total:
Choose an existing fairy tale or fable. In three or more pages take the characters from the existing story and change the "good" characters into "bad" characters, and change the "bad" characters into "good" characters. How will these character changes effect the story? Will the ending be different than in the original story? Will the hero of the story change? Here is your chance to make a classic story a little more entertaining. Be creative!

Creativity and integration of story ideas (25 points possible)
Mastery and use of the 6 writing traits (25 points possible)
Grammar, spelling, and neatness of final copy (25 points possible)


Part B: 75 Points Total:
Choose an existing fairy tale or fable. In three or more pages continue the story from where the original story leaves off. It becomes your job to creatively decide what happens to the characters after they "live happily ever after." You may choose to continue the story you created in part A of this assignment, but you don't have too. You may choose to continue a completely different fairy tale or fable from its original ending. Be creative!
