Fairy Tales in the News

I enjoy bringing drama techniques into the general classroom.  When I worked with middle and high school students in a drama camp a few summers ago, they taught me an exercise called "Fairy Tale News."  Imagine that a fairy tale character was interviewed by a news anchor to share their story.  

When I brought this activity to my upper elementary classroom, I included a writing activity.  I use the blank transcript form shown below for students to write out a script.  Then they perform it for the class.  (One-page scripts are short on purpose.)
