Beowulf inspires mighty yells

In the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf, the hero approaches the lair of a terrifying dragon and summons him to battle with a mighty yell. Following a unit on Beowulf and Anglo-Saxon poetry, Mrs. Byrnes’ English IV students competed to see who could give the mightiest Beowulf-style yell.

Competitors included Nick A., JJ A; Bryant E., Mason M; Tyler M; Duran W; Dominik Q; and Beck E. It was an epic battle, worthy of the epic poem. In the end, three yellers proved victorious: Tyler M., Liam P., and Noah M.
