June 9, 2008: Pre-Reading Think Piece: I am Mordred

Filed under: I am Mordred — Tags: , , , , — Buffy J. Hamilton @ 9:09 am

What would you do if you found out your father tried to kill you when you were a baby?  How would you feel—would you have a range of emotions, or would you have just one strong reaction to this shocking and horrifying news?  How do you think this kind of knowledge might affect a person?  Why?

Explain your ideas in a well written paragraph of 8-10 complete sentences. 


  • First name only
  • Type, spell check, and save your work in Microsoft Word first before you post your work.
  • After you copy your text from Word, wait about one minute before you paste.
  • Ask Mrs. Hamilton for help if you are having difficulty posting.
