Product Description
This is a hands on, student led project that lets students explore The Prologue of Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales". Each student is assigned a different pilgrim to "become". I usually give students a class period or two to prepare and then we spend a day or two presenting. This project could easily be completed in a week!

Students have to read about their pilgrim, look up any words they do not know, find examples of direct and indirect characterization, decide how Chaucer felt about the pilgrim, and create a small poster with a picture and key facts. This assignment could easily be extended by having students read the stories told by his/her pilgrim. On the day of their presentation I give students five minutes to go on a "pilgrimage" of their own around the school. Their job is to search for an object that they feel represents or connects to their character in some way and explain what they picked and why during their presentation.

This is a full project that includes student instructions, a student checklist, an evaluation rubric, and a page of notes for students to work on during the presentations.
