Legends – 10th Lit

Here’s all the information for our King Arthur unit!

Here’s the complete list of posts from the unit.

Our readings for the unit were:

Your major project this unit was the King Arthur Pick Three! Project. Here’s the complete rundown:

Directions:

You will choose three of the boxes listed on the chart on the back of this sheet. Your choices must meet the following requirements:

  1. Your choices must come from three different rows. You cannot choose two boxes from the same row.
  2. Some of the boxes (marked with a †) must be completed at home. You may choose one of these boxes.

We will have time in the computer lab to complete your research and work on your choices. Your completed project is due on Tuesday, May 1st.
Each of your choices will be worth 33% of your grade. Therefore, if you fail to turn in one of your three boxes, you will automatically fail the assignment.
Boxes marked with a ‡ are digital projects that will not have a hard copy to turn in. You will fill out a short form if you choose one of these, so that I know where to look to find it.

tl;dr – Pick three boxes from different rows. One can have a †.

Here’s the chart! I’ve organized it by category, which should make it easier to find what you want to do. For example, if you consider yourself a bookworm, you might prefer the choices in column 1.
