     Congratulations, Seniors!

    Your portfolio presentations were quite a success. Now it's time to prepare for our English IV NC Final Exam.
     
    Tuesday May 12, 2015 will be a fun review of what we have studied so far.
     
    Essential Question:
    How does the English Language evolve from Old English in Beowulf to the Elizabethan English of Shakespeare? 
     
    In order to answer this question, we will experience the sounds of Old English, Middle English and Early Modern English by reading a feature Article on theweek.com.

    That's about all I can give you that won't make me blush! What you find out about the raunchiest tales on your own is up to you! (Hint: The Miller and The Wife of Bath are both pretty risque. We'll focus more on the irony of the descriptions and character motivations in the General Prologue. )
      
    Graded Classwork:
    •  Read the adapted version of The Prologue out loud together, as a class.
    • Answer the comprehension questions.
    • Complete the graphic organizer on each character that is listed.
    These packs will be due at the end of class on Friday!
