Product Description
The Canterbury Tales is full of quirky characters traveling on a pilgrimage together. Use this project to make the characters of "The General Prologue" come alive and inhabit your classroom!

This project centers around a social hour "mocktail party", in which students will embody the ethos of one pilgrim named in "The General Prologue." The teacher can randomly assign one pilgrim to each student, or let students draw the name of the pilgrim out of a hat. Either way, students are given one character to research and become! Students will attend a class party (in character and costume!) as their assigned pilgrim, mingling with the other pilgrims then delivering a one-minute monologue introduction to the class. The catch: Students never name their pilgrim; their classmates have to guess who each person is!

This creative project is designed to take no more than three days. Students will complete the following: 1. Reading and Research 2. Mingle in character, then perform a monologue 3. Compose a reflection piece.

This 4-page packet includes suggested approaches to scaffolding research, tips for the student monologue, directions for the reflection component, a numeric grading rubric, and a handout for students to "Guess the Guest" while their classmates deliver their monologues.

This is my students' favorite project of the unit, and one that they remember year after year. I hope your students enjoy it too!

While reading "The General Prologue," you might also issue my General Prologue Character Worksheet. After assigning this project, you might then assess student learning using my Canterbury Tales Test on the General Prologue.
