Sir Gawain's College Essay: This activity requires students to write a short college application essay from the point of view of Sir Gawain, explaining how he has met or been unable to meet the nonphysical and physical ideals in the knights' chivalric code. A rubric is included. This is a great homework assignment and gets students to prepare for writing their own college essays.
I offer this product as part of my discounted Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Bundle
