Have students decide whether or not Chivalry exists and is still important today. Explore the Legend of King Arthur and the chivalry of his time.
Skills incorporated are close reading, sequence, compare/contrast and analysis for the writing piece.
Activity begins with two Power Points done on different days. Students after viewing both, decide whether or not Chivalry is important today and incorporate their ideas into their paper.
Responses have been interesting over the years as they come up with examples and explanations.
Then the view the second half the Merlin film (Sam Neill version) to add to their conflict/connections chart. I have them close their eyes when they get to the kissing parts for middle school. Most of them are horrified about Arthur and Moran Le Fays relationship.....ooooo
