dc.description.abstractGenesis B, an Old English text, is the second section in the creation story Genesis, which describes the fall of Satan and his angels illustrated with experiences and dialogue from Satan, his angels, Adam, Eve and God. Texas twelfth grade English teachers are required by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, or TEKS, to introduce Old English literature such as Beowulf to uniformly prepare their pupils for higher education. This thesis will explicate how Genesis B can be effectively taught as literature in a high school setting and fulfill the requirements of an entire TEKS section. The importance of Genesis B as literature, by the study of its various literary devices, vocabulary, and historical influences, will be demonstrated in that students will highly benefit by studying this specific literary text.en_US
