Product Description
Use this PowerPoint Beowulf introduction as a way to hook students and teach them epic hero traits along with needed background information before reading Beowulf. As a way to reinforce and gage learning, assign the corresponding evidence-based worksheet during the reading of either the fight with Grendel, the fight with Grendel's mother, or the fight with the dragon. This resource can be used as a regular printed worksheet, or as a digital learning activity. These lessons work perfectly in a traditional printed resource classroom, Google classroom, Microsoft classroom, or Canvas classroom. When using the digital resources, students type directly on the page!

See the preview for an overall view of what you will get!

The PowerPoint has 8 slides and covers:
*Embedded movie trailer hook
*EPIC hero traits mnemonic device
*Comparison of values of the Anglo-Saxon time to our time
*Literary devices found in Beowulf (Alliteration, Kennings, Caesuras)
*Embedded video of an example of Old English
*Explanation of added religious tones during translation

You can add slides and delete slides on this PowerPoint, but you can't edit. I must secure this clip art according to the terms of use.

The worksheet also covers EPIC hero traits as well as literary devices. Students must find evidence from the text to support their answers. I give an example of how to quote from a poem to help them cite properly.

Newly added is a print only craftivity that allows students to boast about themselves while practicing alliteration, kennings, and caesuras.
