Student Instructions

Yesterday, we read that Sir Simon believed William is the squire the riddle above the drawbridge refers to. In order to understand why, we need to learn what it means to be a squire. A squire is generally a young person, around age 14, who is learning to be a knight. Read the article attached. Highlight or leave comments on the parts of the text that relate to experiences that are similar to the life events of William. Explain your connections to the story.
