Description

Overview:
After reading Beowulf and the story of Cain and Abel, students compare and contrast Cain and Grendel. Students research and make a case for a historical figure being a descendant of Cain. After reading page 10, chapter 2, and pages 30-33 in John Gardner's Grendel, students write about the different views we have of Grendel after reading Gardner's novel. Students research and write about a character who they feel is misunderstood like Gardner's Grendel. Students write about two traits they have because of the experiences they had in life, just like Grendel is the way he is in Gardner's novel because of his experiences. Students use MLA format for their works cited page and in-text citations.
