Help students track and trace details for each of the pilgrims named in Geoffrey Chaucer's "The General Prologue," the introduction to The Canterbury Tales.
This two-page graphic organizer helps students complete a close reading of the text, locating the full description of each pilgrim, recording specific textual details, and inferring what Chaucer (the poet's) attitude is towards each pilgrim. Assign this worksheet as you begin reading "The General Prologue" and encourage students to read actively, filling in the chart with details as they go. This document is conducive to any translation of The General Prologue and works well in grades 9-12.
