Arthurian Legends and the Medieval Period for Grade 9 Study.
Budd, Kelly; Alexander, Jayne
Discouraged and dissatisfied with their students' responses to a compilation of Arthurian legends, two ninth-grade teachers developed an approach to teaching the legends that exposes students to numerous versions (including those written and illustrated for children) of the legends and allows them to pick their own Arthurian legend for reading and study. Activities include reading and summarizing the stories in small groups; two-column notetaking; journal writing; creation of coats of arms; production of a poster on a medieval period topic; viewing the film "Ladyhawke"; discussion of discrepancies among the retellings of the Arthurian legends; and a summary discussion. (Appendixes present numerous lists of books, reading materials, activity sheets, instructions for various activities, and a vocabulary list.) (RS)
