Grimm In the Classroom: Teacher Guide

Below, we’ve included a list of suggestions to help get you started, including some prompts for students to use for Reimagined Fairy Tales, suggested themes for Original Tales, and a plot guide for popular fairy tale structure. Also included are some standards-based ties to curriculum and further resources available online.

Reimagined Fairy Tales:

Classic tales retold from the villain’s perspective

Tales told in reverse

Good and evil switch sides

Gender role reversal

Classic tales in a modern setting or with contemporary elements

Tales with new twists and endings

Combine two or more classic tales into one

Replace magical elements with technology

Original Tales:

Character’s virtue, intellect or perseverance is tested

Villain is envious or enamored of protagonist’s beauty or virtue

Characters are or marry into royalty

Magical/mythological creatures and animals come to the aid of the protagonist

Honesty or cleverness is rewarded

Deceit or evil is punished

Characters are physically, mentally or spiritually transformed

Resolution ends happily for protagonists


Simple Fairy Tale Plot Guide

Protagonist is confronted with interdiction that is violated

| Results in punishment, departure or banishment

| Protagonist takes or is given task to overcome

| Task is a significant mark or stereotype of character

| Character functions according to social class/profession; transform or cross boundaries

Significant or signifying encounter

| Protagonist will meet enemies and/or friends

| Antagonist or enemy is often a witch, ogre, monster, or other evil being

| “Friend” is (usually) a mysterious creature or character who gives the protagonist gifts (often in threes; often magical agents)

Miraculous or marvelous change or transformation

| Protagonist is endowed with gifts

| Protagonist is tested and overcomes inimical forces

Usually peripeteia (turning point or sudden fall) in fortunes = temporary set back

| Miraculous intervention needed to reverse wheel of fortune

| Often protagonist here uses endowed gifts (magical agents/cunning) to achieve goal or resolution

Success!

| Usually means marriage, acquisition of money, survival, wisdom or a combination

| As a whole, these functions conclude the transformation and define the overall focus of the tale

*Based on Propp’s Paradigm
