A Fairy Tale By Any Other Name

Many classic tales, like "Cinderella," can be found worldwide. Bacis events are similar, but each retelling is molded by the culture in which it exists. Present your class with several version of tale (links provided) and have them discuss the unique qualities of each. Pupils then write their own ultra-modern version of the Cinderella tale and present it along with a critique of how it compares to the French one composed by Charles Perrault.
