august 21

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "St. George and the Dragon" by Stan Freberg, "Knights of the Round Table" and "The Knights Who Say Ni!" by Monty Python, and "Knight Rider" (TV theme) by Glen A. Larson]

How do modern representations of knights and honor differ from ancient/traditional ones? What do modern portrayals of knights and honor suggest about the culture(s) that produced them?

1. Journal
2. Use the period to collaborate on notes, catch up if necessary, read your literature analysis book if desired, and exchange at least one amazing idea with one amazing person. 
3. You can also get a jump on the HW.

1. Study Beowulf by reviewing the resources under the Beowulf post and answering the comprehension questions. Post questions and comments this post.
2. Find your own resources.  (I just found this one.)  There are many, many sites dedicated to Beowulf... if you find something amazing/insightful/truly awful, please share in a comment to this post.


  1. This website has a lot of information.
