Slaying the Beast


On a mild and sunny day, Mr. Vermillion’s 7th and 8th grade Omnibus class recently went outside to read. The class is immersing themselves in Anglo-Saxon culture and literature through their reading of the epic Beowulf, the classic tale of adventure in which the warrior Beowulf conquers the horrible monster Grendel. Even young students can read and enjoy the Great Books when they are led by a skilled teacher, given the tools of learning, and expected to reach a higher standard. They also get to go outside and sit in the sunshine!
