ID Quiz # 1 Outline

 

Below you will find the twenty ID terms Iíve settled on, drawn from your lists and mine.Twelve of the terms will appear on the quiz, and you will be asked to identify eight of them, providing both a brief definition and account of their relevance to the study of medieval literatureóno more than three or four sentences.

 

Iíll set aside about 25 minutes of class time for the quiz; remember that it accounts for (only) 5% of your final grade.On Tuesday of next week we can spend a few minutes clearing up any remaining mysteries about the terms
