PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Bundle includes thought-provoking intro activities and materials for formative and cumulative assessment.

1. Do You Have What It Takes To A Knight?: This just-for-fun quiz requires students to circle statements to see if they would qualify as a medieval knight. It ingrains the values of the time and encourages them to compare our lifestyles to the medieval times. It's a fun way to start learning about the King Arthur/Sir Gawain tales.

2. Vice and Virtue Writing: Students consider their personal values in this brief, but thought-provoking journal or homework assignment.

3. PowerPoint Notes: This 10-slide PowerPoint introduces the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. It includes information on the Pearl Poet (author of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight), characteristics of a medieval romance and its stages, poetic devices in the text, themes, characters, and the code of conduct for knights. Information is arranged logically and provides sufficient detail without being overwhelming to the eye (or the student mind). The product also includes a fill-in-the-blank version of the presentation for students to use in taking notes.

4. Reading Questions: This 25-question reading guide is based on the abridged translation by Brian Stone in the Glencoe British Literature textbook. Answer key is included.

5. Sir Gawain’s Report Card: This worksheet is a fun way to review Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Students complete a "report card" for Sir Gawain based on how well he met the code of chivalry in the story. Using some humor, the physical ideals (strength, arms handling, and horsemanship) and nonphysical ideals (courage, humility, loyalty, and courtesy) are represented as classes that Sir Gawain took in school. This activity is simple, yet effective in getting students to evaluate Gawain's character using evidence, while still having some elements that they can debate. This worksheet is not specific to any particular version of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

6. Sir Gawain’s College Admission Essay: This takes the report card assignment further. This activity requires students to write a short college essay from the point of view of Sir Gawain explaining how he has met or been unable to meet the nonphysical and physical ideals for knights. A rubric is included. This is a great homework assignment and gets students to prepare for writing their own college essays.

7. Quiz: This 20-question quiz is based on the reading questions/answers. Answer key is included.
