Procedures: Describe the steps to follow to implement this lesson.
Day 1: (45 minutes) The media specialist will use the SmartBoard. 398.2 will be
written on the board. This will spark a discussion with the class. What is the
importance of this number? The media specialist will explain that Folk/Fiary tales
are passed down by different cultures, putting it in this number range. The media
specialist will then read the class a fairy tale. The selected fairy tale will have to
have a fractured fairy tale with it. An example would be Snow White and Seven
Dwarfs and Joe Bright and Seven Genre Dudes. The media specialist will read the
fractured fairy tale after reading the traditional tale. The class will then complete
a Venn diagram on the Smart Board in a whole group discussion. The two tales
will be compared and contrasted. The media specialist will inform the class that
they will work in small groups to create their own fractured fairy tale.
Day 2: (45 minutes) The class will review the location of 398.2 and what kind of
books can be found in that range. The media specialist will share the book Once
Upon a Time: Writing Your Own Fairy Tale by Nancy Loewn. The whole group will
discuss the characteristics of a fairy tale. The group will use the Smart Board to
brain storm a list of possible fairy tale titles. Once the list is complete the class will
be divided into small groups of three. Each group will select one of the fairy tales
from the list. (The teacher will select the groups.) The online catalog will be used
by each group to find the fairy tale. The media specialist will assist students to
make sure they have found the correct tale. Students will read the book they have
