august 20

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Celluloid Heroes" by The Kinks, "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" by Warren Zevon, and --depending on time-- "Heroes" by David Bowie]

What does it mean to be a hero? How are heroes depicted in modern movies and literature? How do you think these portrayals are different from classic and ancient ideas of heroes?

1. Journal
2. Vocabulary Q/A
3. Heroes in literature/intro to Beowulf

1. Begin reading here; read the first section of the modern text (Prologue-Chapter X) and take reading notes
2. Read the excerpts in your textbook (pp.31-60) and take notes.  Then, assuming you've finished reading/taking notes on pp. 4-14, you can return your textbook to the library. :)
3. Please comment to the literature analysis #1 sign-up post for your period as soon as you choose a book/author.  If you have one already please bring it tomorrow (Thursday).
