Teacher's Activity Guide: Myths, Folktales & Fairy Tales

Hosted by Scholastic, this project is dedicated to the world of folklore and fairy tales and would be a valuable resource for teachers of creative writing or those who want to implement this genre into their lesson plans for grades K-12. Myths, Folktales & Fairy Tales contains sections dedicated to each of the three categories and provides advice by and online workshops with published writers. For example, the myth section offers "Myth writing with Jane Yolen," which explores the path of writing one's own myth story in addition to Yolen's biography. Users have the option to explore folklore from around the world and the site contains a wealth of material with a heavy emphasis on strategies for students who are writing their own stories. The homepage contains a link to a teacher's guide and a related booklist, which provides teachers with additional book titles to supplement subject-specific lessons.
