    I agree - Beowulf is fun on its own; Dante requires more work. The Canterbury Tales and Sir Gawain could also be done just to read and discuss, especially since not all the C Tales are assigned. If...

    Hello April!

    I think the answer to your question depends on how much you have done to prepare your students for the test. It would definitely not be fair to just pull out the exam and expect them to remember...
