Lesson Overview and Note to Teachers My classes are held in minute block sessions every other day. Activities in this lesson take about 80 minutes to complete.
In the lesson outlined below, students review "Grendel's Mother" then explore "The Battle With Grendel's Mother" through writing and collaborative discussion. Review 15 minutes We review the action in "Grendel's Mother" by creating a class timeline of the action for each part: Part One The soldiers try to fight back.
She kills Hrothgar's best friend and carries off Grendel's claw. Part II Hrothgar describes the lair of Grendel and his mother. Hrothgar appeals to Beowulf for help and asks him to kill Grendel's Mother. Hrothgar offers Beowulf treasure. Since I did not feel successful in my initial approach to teaching the section last class I focused on the section as a whole at first rather than each partI decide to refocus the students on the order of events in each part so that they could revisit their understanding and fill any comprehension gaps that remained.
Students state that reviewing the text in two parts helped them to understand it better by separating out Grendel's Mother's attack and Hrothgar's reaction to it. After this, I return to the beginning of "Grendel's Mother" to double-check students' understanding with four review questions Discussion Questions: What has been taken from her?
What sort of place is the underwater lair of Grendel's Mother?
What does the imagery used to describe their lair make you think of? This allows students to ensure their comprehension prior to exploring the next section. They must understand why it is important for Beowulf to accept Hrothgar's offer to kill Grendel's Mother.
Previewing the text in this way provides the opportunity for students to frontload the text prior to reading. In addition, I talk to students about reviewing comprehension questions at the end of the section to preview key concepts in the text: What heroic action does Beowulf perform in this part of the poem?
Do you think you would have enjoyed living among the Danes in Beowulf's day? Why or why not? What qualities does Beowulf display in this second battle? Are Beowulf's words and deeds those of a traditional epic hero?
Support your opinion with evidence from the text to support your answer. Does the behavior of Grendel's mother seem as wicked or unreasonable as Grendel's behavior?
I explain that this allows their brains to pinpoint key concepts while reading.
Next class I will use these questions to guide our review for comprehension purposes. Before I begin reading the section aloud, I show students "The Battle With Grendel's Mother" in my teacher's edition, pointing out that over the last three years I have highlighted key sections, written notes and questions, and numbered the events in sequential order to help me understand the text.
I point out that this section is complex because of the intricate details the author provides about his battle with Grendel's Mother. Because of the lengthy battled described in the text, I tell students that I will read the entire section aloud, and then we will write individual reader responses to examine their interpretations in light of support from the text.
After reading, I ask students to complete a quickwrite in response to the text: Take about 10 minutes to write your opinion of this section and why.Dec 30, · December 30th, New 30 ARX — Grendel Necked to Caliber Beats BLK.
