Resource Links Best Books 2010 - Professional ResourcesThis ground breaking book provides teachers in the early grades with the background and practical approaches 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 with wonderful and often surprising results.Fairy Tales In The Classroom contains all the tools, suggestions and stories that teachers need to give their students life transforming experiences and a solid background for all their future writing.
