After students study characterization, students will complete this chart. Students will first describe the pilgrim, give one example each of direct and indirect characterization from the text, identify the sin of the pilgrim, evaluate each pilgrim and decide whether Chaucer is stereotyping the pilgrim or portraying the pilgrim as an archetype, and finally, give Chaucer's overall perception of the pilgrim based on textual evidence. This assignment is so thorough and all inclusive, all students should become very familiar with the text. I tell them that the pilgrims should become their best friends. upon completion, students will use this assignment as a study guide and students are then ready for my Canterbury Tales Project.
