June 11: Post Chapter 3 Reflections, I am Mordred

Filed under: 10A Materials, I am Mordred — Tags: , — Buffy J. Hamilton @ 12:51 pm

In Chapter 3, Nyneve repeatedly tells Mordred it is “hard to be a woman.”

1. Why do you think it might have been difficult to have been a woman during the days of this tale even though there was supposed to be a “code of chivalry” that mandated men were supposed to treat women with respect? Explain your ideas.

2. We live in a time hundreds of years removed from the time of our story, yet some would argue that women’s rights have not changed much since these times on a global basis. Do you believe it is still “hard to be a woman” in this day and age? Consider this question as it relates to women in our country and women/girls around the world. Explain your feelings on this position, and give specific reasons and examples to support your position.

Compose a paragraph for EACH question; in other words, please write two paragraphs.  🙂

EACH paragraph should be 8-10 sentences. Develop your ideas with specific examples and reasons. See Mrs. Hamilton if you have questions or need help!
