  1. Robin Hood: Fact or Fiction?

  2. One Side of the Story… What elements discern fact from fiction?

  3. “Robert Hode (Hood), otherwise known as Robert Dore of Wadsley given the King’s pardon on 22nd May 1382” (Roll of King’s Pardons 4-5 Richard II 1382) It is said that Robert Hodewas was outlawed for his participation in the Peasants Revolt when he rebelled against John Gisbourne, the corrupt Lord Mayor of York. The sheriff was Ralph Hastings. Robin was pardoned a few months later by another sheriff, Sir John Saville whose sister was a prioress at Kirklees Priory where Robin Hood's grave is situated.

  4. How Do We Know What to Believe? Other stories say a man named Robin Hood was an outlaw in Sherwood Forest and a coastal refuge at what is now called Robin Hood's Bay in Yorkshire.

  5. Are these folktales? Or did it really happen? These stories go on about him and Little John having a friendly archery contest. Both men were skilled at archery and from the roof of the Monastery they both shot an arrow. The arrows fell at Whitby Lathes, more than a mile away. Afterwards the fields where the arrows landed were known as Robin Hood's Close and Little John's Close.

  6. Robin’s Untimely Demise A tale of his death speaks of Robin going to his aunt’s house as he grew older and ill. His aunt ended up stabbing Robin, which led to his death. With his last breaths, Robin asked Little John to hold him up to the window, where Robin fired off an arrow. Robin asked Little John to bury him wherever the arrow landed. This spot is where Robin Hood is now thought to be buried.

  7. What Does Hollywood Think of Robin Hood? Robin Hoodwith Russell Crowe -- Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves – Disney’s Robin Hood -- Robin Hood: Men in Tights --

  8. Reflect on What We Watched How has Hollywood’s portrayal of Robin Hood influenced our beliefs about the man? How are the films different? How are they the same? Who are the films’ main protagonist(s)/antagonist(s)? How are they portrayed (look at clothing, surroundings, dialogue, etc.)

  9. To Be Used Later… • • While watching this video from the 2010 Robin Hood, take note of the situation and the context for the battle between Robin Hood and the King. We will use this information later in our assessment task.
