YARN totally lucked out recently when Cecil Castellucci–award-winning YA luminary–sent us her creepy, compelling retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood.” We were thrilled because, well, she is “the divine miss pixie woods,” but also because we had published a totally different retelling of the same fairy tale nearly two years ago, by YARN discovery Hanna Howard. And since you all know we YARN editors are teachers at heart and by training, you’ll understand why we practically saw “LESSON PLAN” flashing before our eyes in pink neon lights.
So, if you’re a teacher, we hope you’ll take a gander over to our latest lesson plan, “Two Little Red Ridings.”
And if you’re NOT A TEACHER, but a WRITER, perhaps you could find some inspiration in the writing prompt that at the end of the lesson? We hope so.
