Product Description
From Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales," this product has an abridged version of the tale, which I shortened to 226 lines for my students. (Some modern versions are 300 lines long and the original is app. 626 lines.)

My version maintains the original wording as well as its iambic couplet format but eliminates a lot of descriptive passages that do not affect the story. Students follow this version quite well.

I separated the poem into 6 parts, and each part is on one page along with focus questions for that part of the poem. Answer Keys are included.

There is a graphic organizer for summarizing Chanticleer's story-within-a-story.

I include one page of board notes for teacher to use while reviewing the format with students, and two pages of the original Middle English with teacher suggestions for using them.

There is a page with a word search of names from the poem and a self-quiz for the poem's format.

An essay assignment wraps up the unit. A student handout delineates the style and other requirements for the essay, as well as a detailed prompt and allusion to another poem.
