Product Description
Forget the analysis or research essay-- use this inquiry project to help students explore the social justice issues present in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales!

In this project, students will compose an inquiry-based analysis regarding one social justice issue from The Canterbury Tales. This 9-page comprehensive packet helps students design their own inquiry project, from the early stages of brainstorming and drafting a "problem statement" to conducting research to synthesizing sources and ultimately presenting their findings.

Suggestions for social justice inquiry topics are included on the first page of this packet. Students will learn how to ask the right questions, consider alternatives, use keywords to conduct research, and make text-to-text connections between research and The Canterbury Tales. Handouts help spell out each stage of the inquiry project and can be distributed individually or collectively. Thus, the student will become the teacher and expert on one particular topic.

This inquiry was designed for AP or Honors level students. The project is easily adaptable for individuals or groups, or suitable for a flipped classroom in which students move at their own pace. The project presentation can also be modified to be a written essay. Edit away to suit the needs of your students! A grading rubric is included on the final page.
