The _Grendel_ Reading Assignment is an annotation assignment that can be given to students when the novel is assigned. It asks students to look at the character focus, zodiac sign, philosophies, and language used in each chapter. The task could also be assigned as a close reading task once students have finished the book. Small groups of students could be asked to reread one chapter with these four prompts in mind, and then discuss and report out. I’ve included 6 pages of my teacher notes outlining answers to the questions for each chapter.
