Product Description
This assignment centers on the importance of boasting to Anglo-saxon culture.

After students have started Beowulf and have discussed the various components of Anglo-Saxon culture - in particular comitatus, wyrd and wergild - they identify examples of these three concepts in the lyrics of Jay-Z's song, "Justify My Thug". (Trust me, the song is basically a 21st centural Anglo-Saxon boast.)

After the lyric analysis, students are to write their own Anglo-Saxon boast.

Contained in the zip file is:

-A lyric sheet
-An MP3 file for "Justify my Thug" (which is mildly explicit)
-A sheet providing structure for the students' analysis of the lyrics.
-A separate assignment sheet for the boast they have to write.
