Block 4

This class is currently studying the Canterbury Tales.

A creative project is due on Tuesday, September 28th, and consists of one of the following:

1.  A Facebook page (or poster) on one of the 29 pilgrims who journeyed to Canterbury. This should be detailed, and should include pictures and other details about the pilgrim chosen. Be creative - you can make up things about your pilgrim if you like, as long as you capture the information presented in the Prologue.

2. Two letters – one from the Knight and one from the old lady, both from the Wife of Bath’s Tale. These should be persuasive arguments as to why they should or should not have to get married.

3. Booklet with at least 4 pages on one of the pilgrims who told a story.

a.       1st page will be a title page

b.      2nd page will be a summary of the pilgrim telling the story (with artwork)

c.       3rd page will be a summary of the tale the pilgrim told

d.      4th page will be artwork about the tale

4. Skit, video or poster about one of the pilgrims.

Each Friday, students are quizzed on the vocabulary words for the week, after having worked on these words for the previous 4 days. This class has no vocabulary words for this week.

We will have our Canterbury Tales Test on Tuesday, September 28th. Students completed their study guides and have all of the information they need to study for this test.

We are working in the computer lab on Wednesday and Thursday of this week (9/29 and 9/30), to do research for our research papers. On Friday, 10/1, we will be in the library, doing research from books and periodicals. See the link above titled, "Research Paper" for more information on this project.
