Product Description

Looking for ways to spark conversation about society and values and provide context for your study of Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales? Have students examine each criteria of the Medieval Chivalric Code, listed in this worksheet. Then, ask students to consider if these virtues and values are alive in our world today. If so, students will complete the chart by paraphrasing or updating the criteria to fit our world today.

Teachers might use this as a reflection after a lecture or reading about the chivalric code, or as a warm-up to a socratic seminar conversation. I have used this as a post-reading exercise after studying "The Knight's Tale" too.

Looking for an engaging activity to make the pilgrims of "The General Prologue" come alive? Scope out my Canterbury Tales- Pilgrim Impersonation Project.
