The Canterbury Tales Character Cards and Descriptions
Use the 24 Character Cards and their Matching Descriptions in the following ways:
After reading the General Prologue, provide each student with either a character card or a description card. Give them ten minutes (or so) to match the character with the description. Once they find their match, verify whether they are correct or not. If they are, have the students sit; if their match is incorrect, they continue to search.
Reading Note Cards
As students read through The General Prologue, have students record characterization information and notes on the back of each character card. I recommend using the blank card and copying them front and back if you use them this way.
Interactive Bulletin Board Option A
Print and cut out the character cards as well as the descriptions. Glue the character cards to library book pockets and place the descriptions inside of the pockets.
Interactive Bulletin Board Option B
Print and cut out both the character and description cards and the a x to the bulletin board (or white board). As you encounter each character in the General Prologue, have students arrange them in order. (This would also make a good “game” review of the General Prologue; have students try to match the most number of character to their descriptions in a set amount of time.)
How ever you decide to implement these in your class, I highly recommend laminating them.
