Teaching The Canterbury Tales can be fun! This product contains a chart listing the pilgrims from The Canterbury Tales and requiring students to add descriptions from the text. Then students determine a relative "current day" position for each pilgrim. Ultimately there is a creative writing assignment in which the students must write about their particular pilgrim from a modern day perspective using a style and tone in keeping with Chaucer's original depiction. Oral presentations of this assignment have always been captivating. Some presentation ideas are included in the preview. A general rubric is included.
