The Eclectic English Teacher has done it again! Here is a fun way to incorporate poetry writing in the Beowulf Unit! This poetic boast allows students to use literary figures of speech such as kennings, alliteration and hyperboles while writing a poetic resume similar to Beowulf's boast to King Hrothgar. Using modern day scenarios, students write a boast in first person. The presentations are always fun for the whole class.
