Today we begin Beowulf!  Duhn duhn duuuuuh...

First we will examine a Prezi over Beowulf providing necessary background information to aid our understanding of the text.  The link to the Prezi is here: 

Then, we will complete a paired reading of "The Heroic Ideal."  In pairs, you will read the essay a paragraph at a time and then explain what you learned.  Your partner will then fill in any gaps in your explanation.  You will trade off each paragraph.

And finally, the moment you've all been waiting for...  Miss Lamb will pass out Beowulf as well as your reading assignments.  We will go over them, and if there is any time left, you may begin reading!  Remember:  Your first reading assignment is due FRIDAY!
