PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This assignment is to be used after reading the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales. Students are to think of an occupation/job from today's society, and write a satirical description of someone who performs this job. Satire can include describing a corrupt and powerful character (some examples: politician, police officer, etc.) OR describing a non-powerful or misunderstood person, who is really honorable (some student examples: teacher, police officer who is judged poorly, construction worker). Students are to utilize characterization, irony, and physical description (like Chaucer)

Included in the assignment:
-directions page (with detailed descriptions)
-brainstorming worksheet
-writing page for character description
-directions to include direct and indirect characterization, as well as irony
-reflection paragraph assignment, where students reflect on why they chose to write about this subject.


I completed this project in 2-3 days, and was extremely pleased with the results. Students were able to utilize the skills we had learned about (writing with certain literary elements and irony), as well as connect themes from C.T. (corruption, satire, irony) to their own lives and societies.
