Product Description
Students are fascinated by the diversity displayed among the pilgrims of Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. This activity guides kids to discover Chaucer's overt and subtle descriptions, making the adventure much more intriguing.

Chaucer’s poem displays the three social strata of the British Medieval Age: Feudal, Ecclesiastical, and the rising middle class in urban areas.

The poet’s expertise in satire and irony make the poem fascinating and hilarious.

This activity compels students to take a closer look at Chaucer’s characterization techniques in the prologue, then synthesize their understanding into a creative, differentiate, collaborative project.

The resource includes:

An introduction with six fill-in-the-blank questions about Chaucer, the poem, and the society.

What follows are 100 (total) questions about each specific pilgrim and thumbs up and thumbs down icons for kids to indicate if Chaucer presents the character favorably or unfavorably.

Questions focus on physical characteristics, satire, irony, and quotes to be interpreted.

I include an identical key for this section of the activity.

After the students complete the questions about the prologue, they are instructed to form collaborative groups in which they will create a poster depicting the pilgrim and displaying the features addressed in the prologue.

Then the group chooses from ten other activities: introductions, dialogues, diary entries, caricatures, collages, newscasts, eulogies, poems, timelines, or travel guides.

Students are encouraged to use technology in creative ways if that is their strength.

There is a rubric for scoring students’ presentations.

Kids have lots of fun with this activity and come up with some fabulous creative results!

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
