Included in this .zip file are three different documents. There are two character charts to complete, one while reading 'Sigurd the Dragon Slayer', and the other while reading 'The Tale of Sir Lancelot du Lake'. Each character chart asks students to identify dominant characteristics of major characters and provide text evidence for this analysis. They also require students to identify the theme of each story (again providing text evidence) and asks them to summarize the story as it relates to the 12 Stages of the Hero's Journey. The third document is an assignment sheet for a compare/contrast essay the examines Sigurd and Lancelot as heroes and their various qualities. Essay requires extensive use of textual evidence.
