ASSIGNMENT: MIDTERM ESSAY or PRESENTATION
Prompt: Choose your favorite character from Beowulf, Grendel, or Le Morte d’ Arthur. What modern values and/or universal themes are evident in the character? What does this tell us about how literature reflects society, culture, place, and/or history?
You may choose to address this prompt in a 400-500 word essay or a 15 slide minimum presentation (Prezi, Swipe, Sway, or Powerpoint). Be sure to justify your thoughts with text evidence (cited in-text) and research from academic sources. The presentation should contain effective visual components that complement and support your analysis.
