5 Tomorrow: More MC Questions & Essay Prompt  The Prompt: Make a unique claim about the characteristics of the Anglo-Saxon and Medieval time periods and back up your claim with at least 5 pieces of specific evidence (your evidence should refer to information you gathered in our unit intros, Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, etc.).

6 Sample Prompts  While many look at the Anglo-Saxon and Medieval periods as the "dark ages" without great significance, the time period actually includes significant literature that helps provide insight into the era and, more deeply, the human need for heroes and humor. (Could then describe cultural details and then info about Beowulf and Canterbury Tales)  While the time periods of the Anglo-Saxon and Medieval eras included radical changes from tribal violence to feudal order, the literature showed that man has remained consistent -- always needing heroism and humor.  While the Anglo-Saxon and Medieval periods seem radically different than contemporary culture, their literature shows they enjoyed ideas quite similar to our own.  Other ideas/themes: hypocrisy, views of religion, roles in society, etc.
