With the major influx recently of comic book movies, and a constant return to traditional fairy tales for inspiration, we are beginning to see a major revival in classic stories. Since the release of Shrek, Fairy Tales have become incredibly mainstream.
One of our lit groups is currently reading a fairy tale adaptation entitled, The Sisters Grimm. Today, we talked about what Fairy Tale characters they would like to see come up later on in the story. Which characters would you like to see?
We also were introduced to a character that they were unfamiliar with… PUCK. Sometimes known as Robin Goodfellow, from William Shakespears’ A Midsumer Night’s Dream.
Teaching gifted students is fantastic because at one, they demanded on learning more about PUCK and went straight to the laptop to research him!
