BEOWULF-- Bias and Propaganda in the Old Epic
This activity challenges students to consider Beowulf as a work of propaganda. Students are to document examples of propaganda and bias in the poem by looking for specific propaganda devices and tone words in action. After gathering evidence, students synthesize their findings in a piece of writing to use as reference during a class discussion on how Beowulf exists as a piece of propaganda. Answer key included!

This activity is also included in my MEGA Beowulf Bundle (25 lessons and activities with answer keys!). You can find the entire bundle in our store, sold separately.
