After reviewing my posts, I feel like I have grown a lot this semester. I gained new analyzing abilities, learned about themes and motifs in fairy tales, and began to utilize these skills to compare movie adaptations and the original tales. I learned about the start of fairy tales and a lot about German history. I learned new tales to tell my children and I got to see new movies that I enjoyed. One of my favorite parts of the semester was when we got to explore our creative selves and do graffiti on the fairy tales. It really helped me understand and picture different aspects of the tales. I also liked the research paper we were assigned - I wrote mine on Horror Films and Fairy Tales. It was very interesting to see the similarities between horror films that I knew and tales I loved. I loved this class and am very sad to have it end.
