Product Description
This product includes three multiple-choice quizzes on Beowulf (Seamus Heaney version). Answer keys are included.

I divided the Seamus Heaney text into 10 reading sections (use my Beowulf Reading Questions to help students prepare!), and the quizzes are based on sections 1-3, 4-7, and 8-10. Here's the subject matter included in each quiz:

• Pages 1-47 (Sections 1-3): The introduction to the Danes through Beowulf's boast (10 questions)
• Pages 47-113 (Sections 4-6): Beowulf's fight with Grendel through Beowulf's fight with Grendel's mother (12 questions)
• Pages 113-End (Sections 8-10): The story of Queen Modthryth through Beowulf's death (9 questions)

You could combine these quizzes into one cumulative test if it is desired, but I think it works best to keep students on their toes throughout the reading!

I also offer this product as part of my discounted Beowulf Bundle, which includes PowerPoint notes, reading questions, worksheets, and projects!

Make sure that you download my free Anglo-Saxon Riddles for a fun and challenging Beowulf filler activity!
