Composed in the fourteenth century, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight combines the hallmarks of medieval romance-pageantry, chivalry, and courtly love-with the charm of fairy tales and heroic sagas.
When a mysterious green knight rides on horseback into King Arthur's court, interrupting a New Year's feast, he issues a challenge: if any of King Arthur's men can behead him and he survives, then a year later the green knight is entitled to return the strike. When Arthur's knights show they are too cowardly to accept the challenge, Sir Gawain takes the test and decapitates the green knight, only to see him pick up his severed head and ride away, leaving Gawain to seek him out to fulfill their pact. It is now Gawain's task to repair and define the fame that Arthur's court is legendary for. Blending Celtic myth and Christian faith, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a Middle English masterpiece of magic, chivalry, and seduction.

Although the date of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is uncertain, and we know nothing about the author, its composition is roughly contemporary with Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales in the latter part of the fourteenth century. It is a remarkably subtle and accomplished poem, in whihc the hero's knightly virtures of courage, courtesy and fidelity are put to the test in a strange adventure involving a huge green knight on a green horse, a winter journey, a lady in a mysterious castle and a challenge answered. It ranks as one of the greatest works of the English Middle Ages and perhaps the greatest triumph of the English alliterative tradition.
The unknown fourteenth-century author (a contemporary of Chaucer) has imbued his work with the heroic atmosphere of a saga, with the spirit of French romance and with a Christian consciousness. It is a poem in which the virtues of a knight, Sir Gawain, triumphant in almost insuperable ordeals, are celebrated to the glory of the House of Arthur. The impact made on the reader is both magical and human, full of drama and descriptive beauty.

Students will apply new grammar knowledge and practice their editing skills with the Fix it! series from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). Fix It: Grammar, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is the last set of books in a series of six (all books sold individually); books build skills progressively and it's recommended that students complete the books in order.
This student book requires students to work in a 4-section notebook obtained separately. Weeks begin with a "Learn It" section that explains what they'll be looking for; the grammar cards in the back are used in conjunction with this portion of the lesson.
Each day includes the same set of tasks; students read a sentence and look up the bolded word in a dictionary to decide the proper definition. On Day 1, students and teachers work together to help the student mark and fix the first sentence with a rewrite. On Days 2-4 students use abbreviations to mark the sentence by themselves. Finally, after marking, correcting, and discussing the sentences with a teacher, students copy the corrected full passage into a separate notebook so that they end up with a handwritten copy of the complete story.
The back of the book contains a section of grammar cards designed to be cut out and viewed with the "Learn It" section for the week. In addition, there is a separate glossary section that covers parts of speech; se ntences/clauses/phrases; punctuation; additional rules and concepts; and stylistic techniques such as "dress-ups." 33 weeks. Student pages cover 69 pages; the glossary is 45 pages in the same book. Reproducible pages for children within the same family. Spiral bound. 3rd Edition. Can be used with grades 3-12.
