Students in Ms. Dalesio’s ELA- 12 classes have been studying, “The Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer. To better understand all the literary devices, rhyming couplets, and satire in these tales, students went on “a Chaucerian Pilgrimage.”
Different groups of students had to create their own “modern-day pilgrim” and write a 20 line poem with rhyming couplets. Then, they had to present their poems with a believable re-enactment.
Each member of the group had a different part of participation.
