In this lesson students take on the role of one of the pilgrims and bring it to the modern age by creating an online dating profile ala OKCupid.
Students then "speed date" to look for their perfect companion for the road to Canterbury.
This is a fun activity that makes the Middle Ages relevant, they take on roles and think like a medieval person. Students remain engaged throughout the process.
