There seems to be quite a bit of interest in this Canterbury Tales post from last year, so I’m reblogging it so more readers will locate it more easily! I’m getting ready to teach Canterbury Tales again in about a week, and if things go like they usually do, I’ll be creating some new resources and activities. I will definitely keep you posted on what transpires!
I truly hope you enjoy this post. It includes video links, some go-with nonfiction texts (one from a blogger-friend who had no idea his essay would end up in my high school British Lit class LOL), plus a really useful prior knowledge activity. If you have any questions, please reach out by leaving a comment or sending me a message on my Contact page. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading!
The Canterbury Tales intimidated me like you wouldn’t believe the first (and second!) time I taught it. That’s why I created this little poetry project that 1) helped my students get the gist of Chaucer’s masterpiece and 2) do a little creative writing of their own.
Try this poem project and let me know how your students do with it by leaving a reply, shooting a message on my Contact page, or sending me an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Need a new poetry idea?
Enter your email below and I’ll send you this PDF file that will teach your students to write Treasured Object Poems, one of my favorite poem activities. I know your students will enjoy it!
