Questions on a narrative
Little Red Riding Hood has existed in a variety of forms for hundreds of years.
The version I used in class and which is recorded on the website is
It is by Charles Perrault, and is found in
Lang, Andrew, ed. “Little Red Riding Hood.” The Blue Fairy Book. New York: Dover, 1965. (Original published 1889.)
Some students were not happy with the ending. They remembered other endings.
As I explained, this is because we take different “interpretations” based on our need for endings and resolutions that we feel comfortable with.
Answer the following questions. Use your imagination if you are not sure of the answer:-
1) Who was Little Red Riding Hood going to visit?
2) Why didn’t they live together in the one house?
3) Who was lurking in the woods?
4) Why didn’t Little Red Riding Hood rush?
5) What ending do you prefer to Little Red Riding Hood?
