Reflection: Lesson Planning Exploring Beowulf's Anglo-Saxon Culture via the Sutton Hoo Exhibit at The British Museum: A Virtual Field Trip - Section 2: Take a Little Trip: Introducing the Assignment


I started using the Sutton Hoo exhibit at the British Museum years ago. The first time I used it, there were no teacher resources. A couple of years later, I discovered some graphic organizers, which I base the one in this lesson on. This year I found even more changes to the site and am glad I saved some of the old lessons because they had disappeared from the BM SH tour. That said, it's always advisable to revisit tech-based lesson each year just to make sure the URLs work and the resources are still applicable. I had to completely redo this lesson this year because of antiquated URLs and other changes to the site.
